“Mean Girls” the musical could be hitting Broadway very soon. Tina Fey, who wrote and starred in the film, has teamed up with her husband, Jeff Richmond, to score the musical. Richmond recently revealed that plans for the project are underway.
“It’s actually becoming a thing! We’re taking meetings with people; I’ve profiled Broadway folks, who are talking to us about it,” he said. “It’s a long process — a year, two years, however long it might take.”
Richmond also insists that his wife’s comedic dialogue will stay intact and fans will be treated to a musical number titled “Fetch” from Gretchen Wieners.
“I think there will be a fair amount of songs to move the action forward, but because Tina’s dialogue in the movie is so funny, there will be a lot of room for that, for sure,” he said. “We’re going to keep those jokes in there. ‘Fetch’ will be a song, for sure, absolutely. And it will probably reprise itself at some point, just so you know. Gretchen Wieners will have a song. That’s all I can say.”
