Mean Girls announced today that Reneé Rapp, winner of the Best Actress Award at the 2018 National High School Musical Theatre Awards (The Jimmy Awards), will take over the role of "Regina George" starting Tuesday, September 10. Rapp will be taking over the role from original cast member and Tony Award nominee Taylor Louderman.
Tina Fey said in a statement, “It's hard to imagine anyone can replace the great Taylor Louderman, but just like high school, when one Queen Bee graduates, a new one spreads her wings. I think Reneé Rapp has everything it takes to thrill and terrify us all! I can't wait to see her do this.”
Rapp will make her Broadway debut in the role this summer from June 7 to June 26 during Louderman’s brief leave of absence.
