Dates, cities and casting were not announced for either show.

Mean Girls, the musical comedy based on Fey’s 2004 film and produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman and Paramount Pictures, is up for 12 Tony Awards, including Best Musical; Best Book (Fey); Best Original Score (Jeff Richmond and Nell Benjamin); Best Direction of a Musical and Best Choreography (Casey Nicholaw).

“Working with Tina and Jeff to bring Mean Girls to Broadway these past five years has been one of the happiest experiences of my life,” said producer Lorne Michaels. “We’re so proud of the show and thrilled people all over the country will see it.”
