❤️ @ruthieannmiles ❤️ Anybody who has read my bio in our @meangirlsbway playbill knows that I’ve dedicated my performance to Ruthie, her Abby, and family. Can’t put into words what it meant to have you in the audience and to hold you tonight Ruthie. (Thank you @huzdatgirl for this pic and your love) #reunited #roomies

Actual footage of my heart bursting. 💙💛
20 hours in Ann Arbor to visit our @umichmusicaltheatre department. A beautiful full-circle way to return home and to our alma mater with my sisters @taylizlou and @erikahenningsen. Chatting with the amazing current students, newest members of our UMich family :) And nothing has made me prouder to be a fckin Michigan Wolverine than when we walked into the MONDAY night PINK THEMED house party they threw us at PARTY O’CLOCK... and everyone showed up to their classes and Broadway shows hours later... YUP. 👏🏼
WORK HARD, PLAY HARD, WORK HARDER, PLAY HARDER. #goblue #brentwagner #meangirls #michigangirls

Last night ❤️ This is 9-year-old Palmer and she’s a survivor soulsister. We both beat Acute Myleoid Leukemia and were Make-A-Wish kids! 🎗 The wish that @makeawishamerica granted me 10 years ago after my battle was to watch a Broadway show for the first time with my family. Palmer’s wish after she went into remission was to watch and be in the Broadway show, MEAN GIRLS.

I’m infinitely grateful to the #MakeAWish and #MeanGirlsBway teams for making both our dreams come true last night. Because what I didn’t know ten years ago, was that my wish was actually for this present moment... To have worked and lived so fully that my daily somehow became a part of Palmer’s extraordinary, so that I could get to embrace her as she pursues life similarly inspired to perhaps relate to someone else as they live their wishes one day. Because isn’t that really the dream? To be able to share in joy and community and laughter and spirit?  And to believe in the capacity of people in this world to take care of each other. Especially through human connection and the arts.

As I did Palmer’s hair and makeup for the show, I was pleasantly overwhelmed by how much of ourselves we saw reflected in each other: a zest for life, a silly humor, an unhinged excitement to be with other people, LaCroix (duh), long hair where there once wasnt any. During this time alone together, I found myself thinking of her parents in the theatre lobby and was thankful that they were having this night too, of seeing their child in pure happiness and health, something that I always want for my own parents. Because the hardest thing for a sick kid, is knowing the burden and pain it causes our caretakers. To look into her mom’s eyes after the show and see her gratitude and hope for her daughter was the greatest gift. It reminded me that today and every day, is another opportunity for us all to actively BE and EXIST and CONNECT and LIVE... and that’s always amazing and enough in itself.

I’ve been asked a lot recently what my favorite memory of MEAN GIRLS has been. Our night with Palmer was beautifully full-circle and is certainly a favorite memory of my life. 📷💕: @mckmurphy @bentylercook
