“Mean Girls” is about to take over the stage. In an adaption of Tiny Fey’s hit 2004 film, a Mean Girls musical is set to open in Washington, D.C. in fall 2017.

The official Twitter account for the musical announced the news yesterday, and though it wasn’t a pink-wearing Wednesday, it turned out to be the perfect time as it was Mean Girls Day. (The day heartthrob Aaron Samuels, the one who looks sexy with his hair pushed back, asks Cady what day it is, which sort of sparks their eventual relationship).

A theatre location in D.C. has not yet been announced, however, according to BroadwayWorld, “The production is rumored to be coming to Broadway in time for the film’s 15th Anniversary in 2019.”

Tina Fey first confirmed in March that a Mean Girls musical was in the works. According to Billboard, the musical will “feature more classic, Broadway-style music than pop-skewing, Bring It On: The Musical-like songs.” Fey had originally joked that it would make its Broadway debut in 2o27 or whenever “Hamilton” closes, which will probably be never.

The original film starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried, Lizzy Caplan and writer Tina Fey. It followed Lohan’s character Cady Heron as she is navigated her new high school after moving from Africa, eventually falling into The Plastics clique, a group of mean-spirited girls who rule the school. The film grossed nearly $130 million worldwide, according to BroadwayWorld.
