Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond were interviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times to talk about the “Mean Girls” musical coming to Chicago during the Holidays! Read the full interview below.
Opening night of the much-anticipated Chicago run of “Mean Girls” promises to be so fetch as the critically acclaimed production — set in the Chicago suburbs — comes home on Christmas Day, which also happens to be a Wednesday (so, wear pink).
“In some ways I think it was booked that way as a little gift to me. I really love that we are in Chicago over the holidays,” says Tina Fey, the actress and nine-time Emmy Award-winning writer behind the 2004 “Mean Girls” comedic movie hit, who adapted the screenplay into the theatrical book. “I feel like the show in many ways belongs to Chicago because of where it’s set and because I feel such a close association to the city with the five years I lived there and the great comedy community that exists.”
The ‘Mean Girls‘ National Tour is heading to Chicago this December, so Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond talked to the Chicago Tribune about how meeting in Chicago led them into making the musical together. You can read the full interview below and check out a new photoshoot they did for the publication in the gallery!
Above the door of the Second City training center resides wisdom from a noted alumna named Tina Fey. “There are no mistakes,” the stenciled quotation reads, “only possibilities.”
For Fey, whose formidable career exploded at the Chicago comedy theater in the mid-1990s, that famously fearless approach to show business has led her from Second City to “Saturday Night Live!” writer and then star actor, to the movie “Mean Girls” and a hit NBC TV show called “30 Rock” to another hit NBC TV show called “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” to many more movies and cameos and animation voiceovers and American Express ads and Allstate commercials and a best-selling autobiography called “Bossypants” and the Broadway musical version of “Mean Girls,” and well, far too many creative projects for any one human to keep track.
The flood is, of course, ongoing and includes a new fall 2020 project for NBC that, on this very afternoon in New York, is being devised in the offices that Fey and her husband, Jeff Richmond, call their creative home.
Tina Fey was interviewed this morning on Good Day Chicago to talk about the 5-week run of the Mean Girls Musical at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago. Watch the video below!
