Mean Girls heading for London in Autumn 2020?

Tina Fey's  hit Broadway  slick and very funny musical Mean Girls is headed to the West End around autumn 2020 according to the  Mail's Baz Bamigboye.

Based on the film starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, trhe musical is about tribal gangs of high school girls, and gossipy goings-on in and out of class. The show’s heroine Cady arrives in the US after being home-schooled by her zoologist parents in Africa but her life changes when when  a trio of snooty Alpha girls known as ‘The Plastics,grudgingly let her join them. Fey has added a lot of her own observations, particularly how schoolgirls (and boys) use ostracism as a weapon.

The show - directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw (The Book Of Mormon, Dreamgirls and Aladdin already in London's West End) - is looking to open around  autumn 2020 with an an executive on the New York production telling Baz: "We are sniffing around for a theatre".
