“That’s So Fetch: ‘Mean Girls: The Musical’ Ditches Streaming for Theatrical Spotlight
Prepare to revisit the iconic halls of North Shore High School in an entirely new light, because Mean Girls: The Musical is making its way to the big screen! Originally slated for a release on Paramount+, this musical extravaganza is now set to grace theaters on January 12, 2024. It seems the studio has caught wind of the box office potential of this project, and they’re ready to let this high school drama shine on the silver screen. Two decades after the original Mean Girls comedy left an indelible mark on pop culture, the Broadway sensation is gearing up for a cinematic encore, complete with the beloved characters showcasing their vocal chops.
Stepping into the shoes of Cady Heron, the central character navigating the tumultuous terrain of her new high school after relocating from Africa, is the talented Angourie Rice. Though she may not have many memories of the United States, Cady’s parents decided it was time to make the move back home. Little did she know the colorful personalities awaiting her as the school year kicked off. At North Shore High, the reigning queen bee, Regina George (played by Reneé Rapp), had just broken up with Aaron Samuels (portrayed by Christopher Briney). But when Regina got wind of Cady’s interest in Aaron, she was prepared to use her popularity to throw a major wrench in the works. Suddenly, it wasn’t just about a boy anymore; it was a battle of wits and wills, with Cady hell-bent on dismantling Regina’s reputation, built on a foundation of making others feel inferior. Adding music to this mix promises to turn up the drama quotient to the max.
So, who’s joining the cast of ‘Mean Girls: The Musical’? Alongside Rice, Rapp, and Briney, we have Bebe Wood as Gretchen, Avantika as Karen, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis Ian, Jaquel Spivey as Damien, Jenna Fischer as Cady’s mom, and Busy Philipps as Regina’s mom. But wait, there’s more! Tim Meadows and Tina Fey, who graced the original Mean Girls film as Principal Duval and Ms. Norberry respectively, are set to reprise their roles. And let’s not forget that Tina Fey, the brilliant mind behind both the film and the original musical, has also penned the screenplay for this eagerly anticipated cinematic adaptation.
Mark your calendars and brace yourselves for the ultimate high school showdown, because Mean Girls: The Musical is poised to hit theaters on January 12, 2024. It’s going to be so fetch!”
