On Broadway’s reopening, producers announced that the girls would not return.
The music, based on actor-comedian-writer Tina Fey’s 2004 film of the same name, opened on Broadway in 2018 and grossed USD 124 million until it closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After transferring to a new school, the original film and stage show follows Kadi and finds herself walking with popular girls.
Fay announced last year that she was working on a big-screen adaptation of the musical.
Thanks to the fantastic creative team, cast and crew that brought Mean Girls to life from our first reading to the final performance. Producer Lorne Michaels said in a statement to Variety.
“We are excited to bring this music to the big screen, resume the tour and prepare for the London production. I am looking forward to that day, hopefully soon, when theaters can open their doors again, ”the statement read further.
Stuart Thompson, Sonia Freedman and Paramount Pictures were also added as producers on the music.
The original cast of the Broadway production included Erica Henningsen, Taylor Lauderman, Ashley Park, Kate Rockwell, Kerry Butler, Gray Henson, and Kyle Selig.
The producers said the closing was due to the closure of Broadway.
“The chance to bring the show to Broadway, with such a talented young ensemble and five amazing female leads, is a dream come true. And for our fierce and devoted fans, the extent of our gratitude does not exist, ”said Fay.
