The stage adaptation of Mean Girls will hit the road next year. A national tour of the Tony-nominated musical is set to launch in fall 2019.
Exact dates and cities—as well as casting—will be announced at a later date.
The musical opened at Broadway's August Wilson Theatre in April, going on to earn 12 Tony Award nominations, including nods for Best Musical, Best Book for Tina Fey (who wrote and appeared in the 2004 comedy on which the musical is based), Best Original Score for Jeff Richmond (Fey's husband) and Nell Benjamin, and Best Direction of a Musical and Best Choreography for Casey Nicholaw.
Like the film, the musical tells the story of new-in-town Cady Heron as she navigates the complex social hierarchy of her high school halls. Along the way, she befriends rebel outsiders Janis and Damian—and infiltrates the vicious clique the Plastics, led by queen bee Regina George.
