GOSSIP: Mean Girls musical is 60% written

Two years ago we reported that Mean Girls was being adapted into a musical by Tina Fey who wrote and starred in the 2004 movie. 

Now composer Jeff Richmond, who is married to Fey and writing the show's score, has revealed that the musical is "60% written". 

During an interview with Yahoo TV, Richmond said: "There's been quite a lot of progress on it. Nell Benjamin of Legally Blonde fame, she's working with us as a lyricist. We've been working for a long time now. I'm going to say it's like 60% written, and it's being staffed creatively... we are looking to do some actual solid readings coming around this summer."

Richmond said the musical will feature a number called 'Old Blonde Song' to be performed by Regina George's mother.

Further info is yet to be announced, stay tuned for updates!
