Tina Fey and her husband Jeff Richmond attended a performance of HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL this week. Fey was blown away with the show. She was so taken, in fact, that she prematurely congratulated the cast backstage during intermission. The recipient of multiple Emmy Award, Fey is currently working on a musical adaptation of her 2004 hit film "Mean Girls." Click here to see more!
