Understudies go on when an actor is sick, injured, or on vacation/personal days.

Why is this the second thread in the past few days obsessing over Mean Girls understudies?

usually you can check their instagram or twitter to see if they're in the city, but some days they won't post. it's honestly luck. i saw the show oct 11 and the whole cast except ashley park was there, saw the show again oct 20 and the whole cast except kyle selig was there. i see the appeal and want to see the original cast, but the understudies are incredibly talented. ashley de la rosa as gretchen was so so good, almost better than ashley park

Everybody but Park was there tonight.

Agree that DeLarosa is amazing as Gretchen.

Ashley Park’s attendance has been very spotty since she’s been filming her Netflix show since August (maybe July). Everyone else is very consistent, but Ashley Park’s show has kept her out of the show a lot.

Ashley Park was a real highlight for me when I saw the show a few weeks ago. Everyone was there except for Erika Henningsen (Tee Boyitch went on for her and was very good, but I find the role underwhelming compared to the showier supporting characters).

Just came from the show tonight and Devon Hadsell made her Karen debut. Jonalyn Saxer was out in the ensemble as well, so I am not sure if this was a planned debut or what (cause Jonalyn usually goes on), but Devon did a fine job. Ashley Park made the BC/EFA speech and made a special mention to Devon about her debut. It was very sweet. Every female swing was used tonight and that show is tight!! I have to say they keep it fresh every time I have seen it. Gave me a good laugh when needed most!
