Mean Girls the musical is coming. The musical is based on the movie written Tina Fey and feature from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt composer Jeff Richmond. Recently, Tina Fey appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she updated fans on the production. Check out the report below for some of the latest details.

Tina Fey’s husband and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt composer, Jeff Richmond, spoke to Yahoo TV about the upcoming Mean Girls musical:

“We’ve been writing with… Nell Benjamin of Legally Blonde fame, she’s working with us as a lyricist. We’ve been working for a long time now. I’m going to say it’s like 60 percent written, and it’s being staffed creatively… We are looking to do some actual solid readings coming around this summer. The Kimmy Schmidt thing took a lot more time than we all thought, so it slowed some Mean Girls stuff down.”

Richmond went on to reveal the title of one of the songs, adding:

“There’s a song called ‘Old Blonde Song.’ It’s sung by Regina’s mother.”

Tina Fey recently appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where he she revealed the premiere date for the new musical:

“2027. Whenever Hamilton closes. We’re going to wait it out.”
