I love the movie and the show, but I don't think this is something we need.What is buried in this announcement is that the production recently recouped.Link
A movie already exists so this is dumb. Very happy they recently recouped though!

Wow. How completely and utterly unnecessary.
I would've just preferred MEAN GIRLS Live on NBC, but money.
Hmmmmm.....2 movie versions of Little Shop; 2 movie versions of The Producers; AND of Chicago; 8k versions of Phantom and Les Mis. I don't care....but I'm not a fan of the story in any iteration.

Ugh. We already have a virtually perfect film of this story, and a decent musical. Enough is enough.
This could maybe go on Netflix. Tina Fey already worked with them on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I also think her style of humor is better suited for film/TV than the stage. It's at such a breakneck speed, it pretty much requires editing to work. Mean Girls on stage was still plenty funny, but it lost a lot of the timing from the original movie.
Because this never works! look at what happened to Hairspray... oh wait.. yea.
I’m looking forward to it, but even if I wasn’t I wouldn’t think it’s existence was “dumb”.Yep, different opinions. What a concept.
^Is that their purpose?
Call_me_jorge said: "Tina Fey probably doesn’t come cheap"I would agree, but would she really demand that much up front that it took the show nearly 2 years to recoup during which the first 18 months of the run the show was selling over $1.1M. a week?

There’s nothing about the musical that seems cinematic. A lot of the staging just won’t work on film. If they wanted to let a wider audience see the musical, they should’ve just professionally taped the Broadway production."There's nothing about the musical that seems cinematic? It is based nearly beat by beat on a movie! It takes place in so many locations they had to use video screens!
