Rapp's Broadway tribute doesn't come as a surprise.

The actress previously held the role of Regina George in the musical adaptation of Mean Girls, joining initially during a limited run in June 2019 and returning as a main cast member in September of that year before closing during the pandemic.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Rapp said performing on Broadway at 19 “was like bootcamp,” helping her feel as though “[she] can do anything.”

“Eight shows a week is the hardest thing ever,” the actress said of her time in Mean Girls on Broadway. “I was dying. It's insane, but it definitely– it was like bootcamp.”

She added, “and to point out, I had a princess track, I wasn't doing s---,” referring to a term in musical theater used to describe a role that isn’t on stage for a majority of the show, but is central to the plot.

The Sex Lives of College Girls star also opened up about the perks that came with learning on Broadway.

“It made my voice a machine,” Rapp said.

She continued: “I figured out how to manipulate my voice in all these different ways so that you can't tell if I don't feel as good one night or the other."

The "Pretty Girls" performer kicked off her Snow Hard Feelings Tour for her debut album Snow Angel Sept. 15, which is currently set to run through March 4, 2024.

Rapp, will reprise her role as Regina in the Mean Girls: The Musical movie adaptation on Jan. 12, 2024.
