Taylor Louderman and the Cast of Mean Girls Step Into the Recording Booth
The cast members of Broadway's hit new musical comedy Mean Girls have stepped into the recording booth at Power Station at BerkleeNYC to make the original Broadway cast recording of Mean Girls. Produced by Atlantic Records, the album is now available for digital preorders and pre-saves from digital retailers ahead of a Friday, May 18, digital release and a physical album release on Friday, June 15.
The new musical adaptation features a book by Tina Fey (who penned the original screenplay), a score by three-time Emmy winner Jeff Richmond and Tony nominee Nell Benjamin, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw. The show had its pre-Broadway world premiere at the National Theatre in Washington, DC, before beginning Broadway previews on March 12.
The Broadway cast is 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 Mrs. Heron, Ms. Norbury, and Mrs. George; Kyle Selig as Aaron Samuels; Cheech Manohar as Kevin Gnapoor; and Rick Younger as Mr. Duvall.
A press release describes Mean Girls as follows: "Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on the Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung."
