The Mean Girls musical has a great pedigree, including Tony-winning director Casey Nicholaw, who’s helmed everything from Aladdin, and The Book of Mormon to Spamalot, and Something Rotten!. The book is by by Tina Fey, with original music by Fey’s husband, Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by Legally Blonde tunesmith Nell Benjamin.
Who knew that one day Regina George would be a Broadway baby?
