And it doesn't stop there.

Any fans of The Office will be happy to hear that Jenna Fischer will be playing Cady’s mom, while Busy Philipps gears up to take on the role Regina’s 'cool mom' originally played by Amy Poehler.

Fey wrote the book for the Broadway play with music created by her husband Jeff Richmond alongside lyrics by Nell Benjamin.

"The songs are sounding really more kind of pop," Fey revealed on Late Night With Seth Meyers back in February of this year.

The comedian continued: "It’s a fascinating process actually because in Broadway everything has to play to the back of the house and in movies everything can come back in and things can play really intimately.

"We have a very cool directing team, a very cool choreographer."
