‘Mean Girls: The Musical’ Coming to Broadway?

‘Mean Girls’ quickly became the cult hit of the early 2000s and defined a new generation of movie goers dealing with their own versions of “The Plastics.” But are we ready to hear “that’s so fetch” on the Broadway stage?

Tina Fey hit the 2013 SAG Awards red carpet Sunday, and while she looked absolutely breathtaking, the bigger news was what she revealed to E! News’ correspondent Giuliana Rancic: she wants to make a ‘Mean Girls’ musical!

“We want to. I would love to… I think Paramount’s onboard,” she said, though official responses from her spokespeople were unavailable. In addition, when Fey was asked about the famous ‘American Idol‘ judges fight between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, she said, “I loved it! And I think Mariah won. … Maybe she can play Amy Poehler‘s part in the musical” (i.e. “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom!”) That is, if Carey ever decided to do Broadway.

If you remember, Fey wrote the screenplay for ‘Mean Girls’ (in addition to portraying Lindsay Lohan‘s hysterical math teacher). If she fulfills the same role for a musical version, we think we can get on board this project. Our concern, though, is the ‘Legally Blonde: Musical’ example, which, for the most part, ended up using the same jokes/oneliners from the movie to little avail. Considering ‘Mean Girls’ has currently grossed nearly $130 million worldwide, however, folks would probably still find so much joy in hearing, “that’s why her hair is so big, it’s full of secrets,” at least a few more times.

What do you think? Do you want to see a ‘Mean Girls’ musical? Think Lindsay Lohan will try and become a Broadway star? Give us your thoughts in the comments.
