How grool is this?
Tina Fey will join the cast of Broadway’s Mean Girls at the August Wilson Theatre this Wednesday to rename a city block in honor of their hit musical, amNY reports.
Julie Menin, commissioner of the mayor’s office of media and entertainment, will lead the renaming ceremony October 3, which all meme-forwarding fans know as Mean Girls Day.
The stretch of 52nd Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue will be symbolically dubbed—what else?—W. Fetch Street. Yep, Gretchen, it finally happened.
The ceremony is set to take place before Wednesday evening’s special fan performance, open only to those who won tickets by entering a digital lottery. Friendly reminder: On Wednesdays we wear pink.
Fey celebrated last year’s Mean Girls Day by, whatever, handing out cheese fries in front of the theater.
The Emmy winner was spotted this weekend at RuPaul’s DragCon NYC, which hosted the panel “Too Gay to Function: The Cultural History of Mean Girls.”

Fey adapted her limitlessly quotable 2004 film Mean Girls into the Tony-nominated Broadway musical, updated with a new score by her husband, Jeff Richmond, and Legally Blonde’s Nell Benjamin.
Directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, the show features Grey Henson as gay student and Drag Race fan Damian, who helps awkward newbie Cady (Erika Henningsen) navigate their high school’s savage social hierarchy, ruled by Taylor Louderman, Ashley Park, and Kate Rockwell as the Plastics.
Mean Girls is now playing at the August Wilson Theatre in New York.
