OMG I Am Totally Buggin' Because 'Clueless' Is Becoming A Musical

This news will have you “totally buggin'”: “Clueless” is becoming a Broadway musical.

The iconic ’90s comedy, which fused Jane Austen’s “Emma” with L.A.’s teen scene and starred Alicia Silverstone, was written and directed by Amy Heckerling, who confirmed that a musical version of her story is being developed in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight.”

“I’ve written what they call ‘the book,’ and it’s a jukebox musical,” Heckerling said. Since the film spawned a beloved soundtrack, Heckerling’s remarks hopefully portend a live rendition of “Kids in America” on the Great White Way.

Excited fans should know that it might be a while before they can line up for tickets, though. Heckerling cautioned that the process of developing the musical is a slow one. “Everything goes so slowly,” she said. “I thought movies took a long time.”

Variety’s original review of the 1995 film described it as “fresh, disarmingly bright and at times explosively funny.”

Perhaps someday a song entitled “You’re a Virgin Who Can’t Drive” will grace the stage of the Tony Awards.
