This is relatively old news, but Tina Fey is in the process of writing the book for a Mean Girls musical, with her husband Jeff Richmond writing the music. She is also supposedly interested in directing as well.
Glad to see that Fey’s post-30 Rock career isn’t being wasted on paycheck-comedy movies.

Tony Award Winner Tina Fey?
I’d say so. If they made “Matilda”, “Ghost”, and plan on making “Rocky” a musical (I think i saw that in the news somewhere) this wouldn’t be a bad option.
I think if this makes it to Broadway, it could be a huge hit. a la Legally Blonde: the Musical.
I am actually REALLY excited. a “Fetch” song? I mean, this could be special.
If only she won that grammy over Betty White she would be very close to the EGOT.
