A Salute to Dad! Broadway Stars Share Childhood Pics and Family Memories For Father's Day
It is that time of the year where we pay tribute to those who gave us life by celebrating Mother's and Father's Day. Playbill.com reached out to members of the theatre community and asked them to share photos and memories.
Remy Zaken: "My father, a successful lawyer, coached me through the first 6 years of my career, and together we meticulously combed through sides, exploring the character and the line delivery."
Remy Zaken: "My dad may not be my acting coach anymore, but he is still my biggest advocate and supporter (besides my mom). Happy Father's Day to the Father of the Year, every year. I love you so much!"
Jose Llana: ""Some of my favorite memories as a kid was singing Beatles songs with my dad on his guitar on weekend mornings. He's the reason I started singing."
Krysta Rodriguez: "This is my parents and I on opening night of First Date. They have been to every show I've done whether its in a basement or on Broadway. I couldn't have asked for more supportive and encouraging parents."
Krysta Rodriguez: "Watching my dad do a backflip off a swing. In his 50s! Needless to say my parents have always inspired me to be adventurous; that your life should be lived hard and that regardless of how old you are, swing sets are always fun!"
Laura Osnes: "This is my dad and me in 2005 performing in a summer production of Peter Pan at my community theater in Eagan, MN. I played Peter and choreographed the show, and I even roped my dad into playing one of the Pirates."
"I feel so blessed to have such a supportive father. He loved me so much he took time off from running his own optometry clinic to spend time with his daughter. Happy Father's Dad, DADDY! I LOVE YOU!"
Sydney Lucas: "Our dad supports all of our dreams of adventure including the trip we asked for to 'The Wizarding World of Harry Potter' before Jake & I started The King & I and Fun Home rehearsals in early 2015. We were floating high that trip...Wingardium Leviosa!"
Lauren Worsham: "My father taught me that there is nothing wrong with being a ham who is constantly trying to make people laugh. He is the best storyteller I've ever met and uses the embellishment rule freely!"
Lauren Worsham: "He taught me to always live larger than life and that I will always be loved."
