Mean Girls,” the Broadway musical co-written by Tina Fey and produced by “Saturday Night Live” impresario Lorne Michaels, has locked in a Broadway run that opens in April at the August Wilson Theater.

Based on Mark Waters’ 2004 teen comedy, which Fey wrote, “Mean Girls” had already looked like a lock for this Broadway season. In addition to big names on the creative team, the title  has a high profile with audiences, thanks to the well-received film, and buzz in the industry about the brewing musical version has been strong. The show is set for a pre-Broadway run in Washington, D.C. starting Oct. 31.

Fey writes the book of the musical based on her screenplay for the film, with music by composer Jeff Richard, Fey’s husband and frequent musical collaborator on projects including “30 Rock” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Nell Benjamin (“Legally Blonde,” “The Explorers Club”) writes the lyrics, with Casey Nicholaw, Broadway’s go-to guy for musical comedy (“The Book of Mormon,” “Aladdin”), directing.
