A couple of weeks ago on the Cougar Chronicle, readers were able to experience superhero’s in a whole new way with our article, “Superhero Profiles”. The light, or goodness, in the Marvel and DC comics and movies, were delved into and explained with ease.

Mean Girls, the movie starring Lindsay Lohan as the main character of Cady Heron, is no doubt a widespread and popular movie. From games to T-shirts, the movie has been spread across so many different mediums, it is almost impossible to not at least know of the movie. So it only makes sense to bring the story from the big screen to Broadway.

The musical comes from the same creator as the movie, Tina Fey. Of course, she wasn’t alone in the creation. She had help with music from Jeff Richmond and lyrics from Nell Benjamin.

Since sometime around 2013, a musical adaptation of the iconic movie has been worked on and developed into an amazing show. Rumors of the show have been spiraling since October of 2016, but nothing was sure at that point. That is, until the National Theatre confirmed the D.C venue on December 30, 2016. More…
