When asked if she had reached out to the The Canyons actress or her former Mean Girls costars, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert, Henningsen told Us Weekly, “I haven’t! I know Lindsay Lohan wants to come see the show. I hope she does. I don’t want to know about it [if she’s in the audience] because I will get so nervous.”

“The greatest thing about bringing this musical to life is that our creative team didn’t say, ‘Can you just recreate the iconic film performance?’ We could never hope to. I could never deliver the performance that Lindsay did. … It has been really special being able to recreate these characters for a musical and in this current time period,” Henningsen told Us at Variety’s Power of Women: New York event on Friday, April 13.

Lohan expressed her own thoughts about the Broadway adaption, telling Wendy Williams in January,Tina has really, really immersed herself into the Broadway show. I can’t wait to see it. It seems really exciting.” She also touched on a Mean Girls 2, saying, “I would love [to see another movie] but I think they’re really focused on the Broadway show right now.”
