The Plastics Talk and Sing—At the Same Time—in Teaser for Mean Girls Musical
Taylor Louderman, Kate Rockwell, and Ashley Park will bring Regina, Karen, and Gretchen to the stage.
Before the Mean Girls musical makes its world premiere in Washington, D.C., and makes its way to Broadway, check out the show’s first teaser above.
The video features Taylor Louderman as queen bee Regina George, Ashley Park as Gretchen Wieners, and Kate Rockwell as Karen Smith. Following a string of icy remarks from the three plastics, Rockwell’s Karen shows off her ability—or at least an attempt—to talk and sing at the same time.
Mean Girls will begin preview performances at the August Wilson Theatre (currently the home of Groundhog Day) March 12, 2018. Opening night is set for April 8. Prior to then, the musical will make its world premiere at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., October 31.
Tina Fey, who penned the original screenplay and appeared in the 2004 film, has returned to write the book for the stage adaptation. Her husband, composer Jeff Richmond (who frequently contributes music to Fey's projects), penned the score.
While casting for the Broadway bow will be confirmed at a later date, the company of the National run also includes Erika Henningsen as Cady Heron, Barrett Wilbert Weed as Janis Sarkisian, Grey Henson as Damian Hubbard, Kerry Butler as Ms. Norbury, Kyle Selig as Aaron Samuels, Cheech Manohar as Kevin Gnapoor, and Rick Younger as Mr. Duvall.
