Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Tina Fey announced via YouTube video that a stage musical based on her movie Mean Girls is heading to Broadway in March.

"Mean Girls is a ferociously funny new musical from director Casey Nicholaw, composer Jeff Richmond, lyricist Nell Benjamin and book writer Tina Fey," a message accompanying Wednesday's clip said. "The story of a naïve newbie who falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies, this incisive comedy gets to the hilarious heart of what it means to be a true friend -- and a worthy nemesis."
