Tina Fey and the ‘Mean Girls’ Team Give Advice to Their High School Selves
High school can be rough, and “Mean Girls” captures the ups and downs of the turbulent teenage years like no other story. The 2003 Tina Fey film is coming to Broadway, with performances starting on March 12, and we asked the musical’s creative team: What advice would you give to your high school self?
Jeff Richmond: Don’t worry, you’re going to have a show opening on Broadway one of these days. Stop fretting.
Nell Benjamin: My high school self is not listening to anyone who gave her advice. It’s an intellectual exercise at best.
Tina Fey: If you use the hot sticks on your hair, commit to it. Don’t get nervous and brush it out. It’s only going to get worse.
Casey Nicholaw: I was a little removed in high school. I think I did everything right for myself. I maybe didn’t do everything right according to other people in high school. I’m here now because I did the things I wanted to do.
