Becca Tobin (Kitty) broke her silence over the weekend following her boyfriend Matt Bendik’s sudden death on July 10, and in addition to thanking fans for their support and calling Matt “the most extraordinary man I knew”, the Glee actress also made her first appearance since his untimely passing.
Becca, along with several other members of the Glee family including Kevin McHale (Artie), Darren Criss (Blaine), and Heather Morris (Brittany), all headed out to the Hollywood Bowl this past weekend to support co-stars Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) as they appeared in the Adam Shankman-led revival of Hair. Kristen Bell, Hunter Parrish, and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland also appeared in the much-talked-about production.
Kevin snapped a photo of Sarah, a (fake) pregnant Jenna, and Amber on stage, writing in the Instagram caption, “In awe. Ladies in "Hair" @msamberpriley @jennaushkowitz @therealsarahhyland.” Sarah’s rocking patchwork jeans, while Jenna and Amber are sporting ‘60s era long dresses and flowers in their hair. Flower power forever!
Becca was spotted inside with a group of pals, including Jenna and Glee production assistant Meg Doyle. Meg, who also happens to be Jane Lynch’s (Sue) niece, posted the above photo and wrote, “So proud of our talented frandz!!!!! #HAIR #hollywoodbowl @jennaushkowitz @hillman83.”
By all accounts, Hair was a huge hit, and we’re glad Becca was able to spend some time with good friends as she continues to heal and begins a new chapter of her life.
