Via Vulture:

(Amy) Heckerling is currently hard at work on bringing Clueless to Broadway and has written a book and song lyrics for the musical. Despite being in the “really, really, early, early stages,” the question of whom Heckerling’s ideal Cher would be looms large. “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death,” Heckerling said, while acknowledging that Perry’s schedule might make a commitment difficult. “Maybe Iggy wants to do it!”

After Heathers I think they can make any teen movie a musical with the right type of score. Excited for this.

If y'all could dream cast these roles, who would you pick? I am very interested to see who a lot of you have in mind for these roles!

These are the best suggestions I have ever heard. Vanessa Williams as Tai and Idina Menzel as Cher would guarantee to get me there even if not for the right reasons!

I've always thought that "Popular" and "I'm Not That Girl" would fit perfectly in a musical version of Clueless. Cher and Dee would sing "Popular" to Tai as they made her over, and Tai would sing "I'm Not That Girl" when she realizes that Elton prefers Cher over her.

Salve, Regina, Mater misericordiae
Vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra
Salve, Salve Regina
Ad te clamamus exsules filii Eva
Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes
O clemens O pia

Of course Katy Perry! Anything to get the publicity machine rolling...

This should appeal to undiscerning 90's nostalgia fans and the seemingly ever-moneyed teens who love to see themselves portrayed on stage!
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

If they are talking High School kids, I hope they hire high school aged kids (or not much older). There is nothing less appealing to me than a 30 year old hired to be 15..takes me right out of the show.

And yes Lilla Crawford as Amber...good idea.
