On a recent broadcast of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, Tina Fey spoke about her work on the forthcoming musical version of the hit film Mean Girls.
As previously reported, Tony Award-nominated Legally Blonde lyricist Nell Benjamin is collaborating with Golden Globe winner Fey and Fey's husband, composer Jeffrey Richmond, on a stage musical adaptation of the 2004 dark comedy film.
Fey told host Andy Cohen that she has no plans to star in the musical, which will have a "classic Broadway" sound. When asked when Broadway will see the production, the actress/writer joked, "in 2027… whenever Hamilton closes."
Watch the interview below:
Mean Girls was directed by Mark Waters and starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lizzy Caplan, Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried and Fey.
The film centers on Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), who returns to the U.S. from Africa and must adjust to high school life after previously being homeschooled. She soon is forced to decide which social clique to be a part of and finds herself caught in the drama of "The Plastics."
