SHUT UP: The Mean Girls Musical Is Really, Actually, Officially Happening!

You know how we've been teased, over and over again, with the promise of a Mean Girls musical? It happened back in 2013, prompting us to do some very aggressive Photoshopping. It happened earlier this year, when Queen Tina Fey herself talked vaguely about working on the project.

But now we have cold, hard evidence. We have beyond-a-reasonable-doubt proof. We have confirmation, via an official (blue-checkmarked and everything!) Twitter account, that our dreams are about to come true:

The Mean Girls musical is coming to Washington, DC in the fall of 2017.

WE KNEW THIS DAY WOULD COME. IT'S LIKE WE HAVE ESPN OR SOMETHING.

(I have a powerful urge to just word vomit Mean Girls quotes at you right now, guys. Hold me back.)

We don't yet know the theater, or the exact premiere date, or the choreographer, or anything about the cast (although there's already been plenty of speculation about who'd make the perfect Regina George.)

But we do know that this is going to be incredibly major. How major? THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST. (#sorrynotsorry)

We'll be wearing pink every Wednesday from here on out in anticipation, and we're going to pretend like that's a new thing and not just a thing we've done every Wednesday since 2004.
