"Mean Girls," the Broadway musical from last spring adapted from Tina Fey's 2004 teen movie, is coming to Chicago at the end of this year.
The first national tour will play the Nederlander Theatre (24 W. Randolph) for a five-week engagement, from Dec. 25, 2019 to Jan. 26, 2020, according to a Wednesday announcement from Broadway in Chicago.

The musical, with a book by Fey, music by Jeff Richmond (Fey's husband and the former Second City musical maestro), and lyrics by Nell Benjamin, is directed by Casey Nicholaw. The Broadway production opened in April 2018 and is still running and selling tickets through the end of this year. According to Chris Jones' review in the Tribune, the story has been updated for the smartphone age but is still "set among the cliques and geeks of what now is a carefully veiled stand-in for New Trier High School in Winnetka."
"Mean Girls" will be part of the next Broadway in Chicago season on sale this spring; more at www.broadwayinchicago.com.
