She will co-write the musical with her husband, composer Jeff Richard (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, 30 Rock) producing the music.

Before the show reaches Broadway, though, it will have a run at Washington D.C.'s National Theater from October 31 to December 3, The New York Times reported.

It was announced on Wednesday that Mean Girls will be playing in the August Wilson Theatre, with previews beginning March 12, 2018 and an opening night of April 8, 2018.

It's adapted from the hit 2004 teen comedy and Fey, who appeared in the film, is one of the writers. He is known for his theatrical works that include "Aladdin", "Something Rotten!", "The Book Of Mormon" and "Spamalot".

The producers of the musical are Stuart Thompson and Lorne Michaels, along with the partnership with Paramount Pictures, the company that brought the classic story by Tina Fey to the big screen.

After years of living with her zoologist parents in Africa, Cady Heron moves to IL and must find where she fits in the social hierarchy. Full of razor-sharp wit and remarkable insight, "Mean Girls" takes a look at friendships - and human nature - through a ferociously amusing lens. She goes into a web of issues involving her personality, her family, and her relationships.

Although updated with more modern references, Mean Girls will follow the plot of the movie that provided memorable roles for actresses Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Lizzy Caplan. Cady's friends Damian Hubbard and Janis Sarkisian will be played by Grey Henson and Barrett Wilbert Weed.

"(The audience) will hopefully find that (this musical) has the DNA of the movie and is true to the spirit of it, but is also opened up in a lot of ways", Fey told "Entertainment Weekly.

Erika Henningsen, Taylor Louderman, Ashley Park and Kate Rockwell were part of the cast as Cady Heron, Regina George, Gretchen Wieners and Karen Smith respectively. She added that the music of the theatrical show will be "catchy", and the viewers will walk out of the theater space humming the songs.
