Mean Girls

Tina Fey wrote and starred in the film version of Mean Girls back in 2004, with a star-studded cast of Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and more. It took about 13 years after the phenomenon was released, but it was finally turned into a Tony-nominated Broadway musical. Tina Fey returned with her husband and other collaborators to revamp her popular movie into a relevant live performance.
