This week on The Ensemblist, we celebrate the 2018 Chita Rivera Award nominees. Today we hear from Myles McHale, nominated for Outstanding Ensemble in a Broadway Show for his role in Mean Girls.

The Chita Rivera Awards are named after the legendary Chita Rivera, who once said she would crawl through broken glass just to get two lines in a Broadway musical.


The cast of Mean Girls being nominated as Outstanding Ensemble is such a thrilling honor because we didn’t have to crawl through broken glass to get a few lines. Tina Fey gave each and every one of our characters a name, from Glen Coco to Rachel Hamilton. Nell Benjamin and Jeff Richmond gave us solo spots in their beautiful music and lyrics. And Casey Nicholaw created outstanding dances and scenes where you really feel for these high school students as if you too went to North Shore High.


Outstanding Ensemble is almost a misnomer because the family that has formed out of this cast, through margaritas and malfractured hips, is one of the strongest Broadway has ever seen! We have five Newsies, a couple Bring It Ons, and ELEVEN BROADWAY DEBUTS! I am so proud to be a part of this show and even more proud to be acting, singing, and dancing towards the future. Who knows what Ensemble will mean then? Rest assured, always something good.
