The Broadway version of the cult comedy, Mean Girls, has become a must-see event in New York City. According to Erika Henningsen – who portrays the main protagonist, Cady Heron – Lindsay Lohan is eager to see it.
When the reporters asked Erika if she has spoken with the original cast and crew of the movie, she said that she did not but knew Lohan was stoked to watch it.
The Broadway star admitted she wouldn’t even want to know if the film’s stars were in the audience because it would make her exceedingly nervous.
She explained, “I don’t want to know about it (the attendance of the original movie’s stars), because I will get so nervous.” And while a lot of fans are excited to see the Broadway rendition of the film, some worry it will merely destroy its legacy.
In response, Erika said she was happy that the creative team wasn’t attempting to re-create the same experience of the film. Erika explained that she and the rest of the team weren’t intending to create “Mean Girls” except on stage rather than on screen.
As you may know, Tina Fey wrote the original script with Queen Bees and Wannabees in mind, and her husband did the music.
Lohan, when speaking with Wendy Williams in January, said that Fey had immersed herself entirely into the Broadway show. She explained, “I can’t wait to see it.”
As for if fans should expect to see a sequel, Lohan admitted that most are focused on the Broadway at the moment, rather than a sequel. Moreover, Mean Girls’ other star, Amanda Seyfried, joked to Us Weekly back on the 11th of April that she wasn’t invited to go, but would’ve had she gotten the invitation.
