Totally Grool - The Plastics are back with this TWELVE time 2018 Tony Nominee!

In a move that's being undoubtedly described by fans as 'so fetch', Tina Fey's musical adaptation of her 2004 movie Mean Girls will finally bring the Burn Book to Broadway in spring 2018 after a tryout in Washington. Featuring a book again by Fey, music from Jeff Richmond, lyrics from Legally Blonde's Nell Benjamin and direction from Book of Mormon's Casey Nicolaw, it's safe to say the production is in safe hands. So join wide-eyed Cady Heron once again as she heads from the wilds of Africa to the wilds of high-school. This time with songs.

It's hard to believe it's been over 13 years since Tina Fey's smart, funny and emotionally engaging movie came out and introduced us to Cady's high-school food chain, ruled at the top by a trio called 'The Plastics', a group of menacing popular girls with social scare tactics more terrifying than pride of lions. In light of the years that have passed (there probably wasn't even like, computers back then), Fey has brought the musical into the present day, where the Plastics have added Snapchat, What's app and Instagram to their legion of weapons!

She Doesn't even Go Here - The Story of Mean Girls

Cady Heron is a bright home-schooled student who has spent most of her life in Africa with her parents. Now back in the US, she's sent to the local high school to learn to play with others. Turns out, it might be her biggest challenge yet. Coupled with learning what normal school is like, she must navigate the twisting social whirl that surrounds her. When she finds herself the target of the infamous Plastics, led by wolf in sheep's clothing Regina George, Cady decides with her new friends Janis and Damien that it's time to put a stop to their dictatorship. As Cady's plan sees her growing ever more popular and catching the eye of a certain boy, her revenge seems less and less important. Can Cady rediscover herself and bring down the Plastics, or will she be seduced by their world and lost to the Mathletes forever? It might be a classic high-school conundrum but we guarantee you won't mind seeing how this one plays out.

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
