Plastics (and non-Plastics) all around the world will have another reason to celebrate the October 3rd because Mean Girls, which inspired iconic phrases like "She doesn't even go here" and "You go, Glen Coco!", is being made into a musical.

A. Musical.

You read that right.

Director of the 2004 cult classic Tina Fey first teased the news earlier this year. She said "We're working on the musical adaptation, which we're very excited about. Thanks to Ellie Kemper's pregnancy, we actually have this whole summer to focus on that."

According to sources, she will be working on the stage adaptation with her composer husband Jeff Richmond, and lyricist Nell Benjamin, both of whom also worked on the original film.

If nothing goes wrong, we'll hopefully soon be blessed with musical renditions of The Limit Does Not Exist, Your Mum's Chest Hair, Her Hair Is Full of Secrets and more at an undisclosed stage at Washington D.C. in 2017. Would it be too much to ask for the original cast to reprise their roles?
