Shoutout to @mbqmorrissey for giving me the greatest gift 29 years ago today. @maryspacekate, the world is brighter and better because you’re in it. I fell hard for this green queen from the moment we sang “For Good” in our first rehearsal together. She challenges me and loves me. She teaches me, and cares for me. @maryspacekate is multi-talented, spontaneous, patient, creative, silly, fun and forever entertaining me on and off stage. In a role that is so very demanding, she is constantly thinking about the needs and feelings of everyone around her. Thank you for being brave in the way you lead this company and live out each day. Thank you for wearing matching outfits and consuming copious amounts of caffeine and having steam parties with me. You are direct and honest and open-hearted. You give thoughtful gifts and the tightest hugs. I want to celebrate this double name witch and our friendship every day, but especially today on the day of her birth!
For this Father’s day, I was lucky enough to have both of my dad’s in the audience of @wicked_musical!
I love my dad because he’s been at the center of my support system since the beginning. He’s the most unselfish person I know, and he can finish the lyrics to just about any song in any musical. He’s a saint when it comes for caring for others, and no one in the whole world can make me laugh harder than him. Fun fact: he took me to see the OBC of Wicked when it first opened almost 15 years ago! I’m his favorite daughter! (There aren’t any others.)
I love my father-in-law because he raised my sweet husband to be the man that I am married to today! He’s welcomed me into his family with open arms since I first showed up 8 years ago. He’s traveled all over the country to see me perform in every musical, and has even been my opening night date! He’s creative and fun, and he can build anything. He’s a hard worker and the kindest man you’ll ever meet. I’m his favorite daughter-in-law! (There aren’t any others.)
Thanks for being you, my dads!!!
SCROLL TO SEE THESE GUYS DANCE 💃🏻 Happy Father’s Day!!
This afternoon I got to perform my 500th show as Glinda the good 👸🏼
I feel so fortunate to step in this gal’s beautiful, high flyin’ bubble 8x a week🙆🏼♀️
I keep learning from this sparkly, fun, smart, sweet, big-hearted good witch 💗
Every milestone in life is better with a best friend by your side to cheer you on and spoil you with pedialyte. Thanks for being that friend, @maryspacekate. 👭
Love this company. Love this job.
Feeding a rhino is cool.
Touching the trunk of an elephant is cooler.
But nothing beats celebrating this dear friend.
Not tie dye t-shirts. Not unicorns. Not anything.
Thanks to @annamariezoo for making this pre-game birthday fun such a success. I think we even managed to surprise her a little bit 🙉
Bubble press today with the cutest @mckenzie.kuehnlein! Thanks for coming to play in Oz- glitter, bubble juice and all! ✨🙆🏼♀️
Happy 60th birthday to my precious Mom. Thank you for teaching me what it means to bring more love to every situation and to explore every possibility when it comes to dreaming big. You’re brave and kind and breathtakingly beautiful. I love that you’re so quick to correct my grammar and that you always smell of Mary Kay Night Cream and Curve perfume. It’s because of you, I like wearing matching outfits and reading books. I hope I can grow up to be even half the woman that you are today, my same-brained, blue eyed, great adventurer, mama Claire. Happiest birthday to you! “What is time and presence to us? Nothing. We are linked in heart by love, forever and ever.” #ICAY
