Photo Flash: Tina Fey Goes Backstage at HEATHERS Off-Broadway
How VERY fetch! MEAN GIRLS creator Tina Fey was spotted with her husband Jeff Richmond on Sunday night at the hit musical HEATHERS at New World Stages in New York. Scroll down for a photo of Fey with the cast!
Apparently, the Emmy-winning comedienne went 'corn nuts' for the musical, as witnesses reported that during intermission she went backstage to meet the cast and tell them how "blown away" she was by the show. Fey is developing the musical stage adaptation of MEAN GIRLS with Tony-nominated composer and lyricist Nell Benjamin, wife of Tony-nominated HEATHERS co-writer Laurence O'Keefe.
