Nearly 14 years after Daniel Franzese originated the role of Damian in Mean Girls, the actor is giving the Broadway production two thumbs up. Franzese, who originated the role of the witty gay best friend Damian in Tina Fey’s 2004 teen comedy, attended the showing of the Mean Girls musical adaptation on Tuesday.

The Looking alum came out to support the teen comedy’s Broadway adaptation and loved it. Afterward, he took to Instagram to share a photo of himself and the show’s new Damian, Grey Henson, accompanied by a caption praising the production.

“Such an incredible experience to see @greyhenson slay the stage as Damian in @meangirlsbway. A big ‘Four for you!’ to the whole brilliant cast!” Franzese wrote. “The show is its own new thing and that thing is fabulous. Can’t wait to see it again.”

“Tina really gave us permission to create our own versions of the characters,” Henson said during a post-show celebration at TAO Downtown. “We were allowed to reinvent these roles, and she actually started writing for us.”
