Park will play Ashley, the glue that held the short-lived girl group Girls5eva together.

"Mean Girls" Broadway star Ashley Park has joined the cast of "Girls5eva" from executive producer Tina Fey. She joins a star-studded cast that also includes Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Paula Pell and Busy Philipps.

Deadline says that Park will play Ashley, the glue that held the short-lived girl group Girls5eva together back in the late '90s. She had the most experience going in, having been part of seven failed girl groups previously.

Girls5eva kicks off when a one-hit-wonder girl group from the '90s gets sampled by a young rapper and its members reunite to give their pop-star dreams one more shot. They may be grown women balancing spouses, kids, jobs, debt, aging parents and shoulder pain, but can't they also be Girls5eva?

Ashley Park is best known to Broadway audiences as Gretchen Weiners from the original cast of "Mean Girls." Check out the rest of her Broadway bio here:
