The Broadway production of Tina Fey's new musical adaptation of her hit film Mean Girls has given the public a first look at the musical comedy with new poster art that features stars Taylor Louderman, Ashley Park, and Kate Rockwell. As previously announced, previews will begin March 12 in advance of an April 8 opening at the August Wilson Theatre. Watch Fey introduce the the Broadway run in the video below.
The musical features a book by nine-time Emmy winner Fey, a score by three-time Emmy winner Jeff Richmond and Tony nominee Nell Benjamin, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw. Its D.C. cast will be led by Erika Henningsen as Cady Heron, Taylor Louderman as Regina George, Ashley Park as Gretchen Wieners, Kate Rockwell as Karen Smith, 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.
The creative team for Mean Girls includes Scott Pask (set design), Gregg Barnes (costume design), Kenneth Posner (lighting design), Brian Ronan (sound design), Finn Ross and Adam Young (video design), Josh Marquette (hair design), Milagros Medina-Cerdeira (makeup design), Mary-Mitchell Campbell (music director), John Clancy (orchestrations), Glen Kelly (dance and incidental music arrangements), Jeff Richmond and Glen Kelly (additional music arrangements), and Howard Joines (music coordinator).
After years of living with her zoologist parents in Africa, Cady Heron moves to Illinois and must find where she fits in the social hierarchy. A sweet, naive newbie, Cady quickly attracts the attention of the Plastics, a trio of popular frenemies led by the vicious and calculating Regina George. When Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns that you can't cross a queen bee without getting stung.
