Pretty Little Liars star Keegan Allen (Toby) has been getting high praise for his Off Broadway debut in Small Engine Repair — but it’s not all from his PLL family. Who was spotted at the December 21st closing performance?
“When worlds collide #PLL #GIRLS (at the closing night for #smallenginerepair ),” Keegan posted on Instagram of Girls’ star and showrunner, Lena Dunham, with PLL showrunner Marlene King. Seems that the two television showrunners were both on hand to support Keegan on the big night. Aww. That warms our heart!
Keegan’s connection to Marlene is pretty self-explanatory, and we’re not surprised to see the PLL executive producer supporting one of her actors. As for Lena, we’ve never seen the two television actors together, but we know that Keegan has sent at least one tweet Lena’s way. In February, he tweeted at Lena his interest in starring in her HBO show: “I wanna be on girls… I want to be on them.”
Earlier this month, Keegan’s PLL co-stars Ashley Benson (Hanna) and Ian Harding (Ezra) made the time to see Keegan in his pretty little debut. “With this kid @actuallyharding seeing @keeoone in small engine repair,” Ashley Instagrammed from the audience, sharing a snapshot of her gorgeous self and co-star hunk Ian in their seats for the play.
Shay Mitchell (Emily) even made it to the play’s opening night in November and was super proud of Keegan: “So so soooooo good! I could not be more proud of @keeoone for doing an AMAZING job in tonight's performance of #smallenginerepair ! A definite must see!!!” Shay posted on Instagram.
And while Troian Bellisario couldn’t make it out to NYC for Small Engine Repair, she let Keegan know how proud she was on Twitter. She tweeted: “My friend@keeganallen in one of my favorite magazines. He also just opened his play. So proud of you Keegs.”
Aww! We’re so happy the PLL cast is so supportive of one another IRL. Now if only we can make a Girls/Pretty Little Liars crossover happen in real life, too!
