Photo Special: Stars of the Stage Celebrate Mother's and Father's Day With Pics, Memories and Notes of Love to Their Parents
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.
Victoria Clark: "My mom is my inspiration and my real-life fairy godmother. Here we are with my son Thomas Luke Guest."
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: "This is my mom and I hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for her birthday."
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!"
Brynn O'Malley: "Denise Cargill Wanty is the reason I am where I am today. She has always been so supportive of my career despite the fact that, deep down, I know she'd prefer me living in her basement with a litter of grandchildren. Love you, Mom!
Ariana DeBose: "My mom Gina is my best friend. Not only did she raise me as a single parent, but she's a public school teacher and thereby has raised hundreds of kids. She has never let me back down from a challenge. For that, I am truly grateful."
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!"
Lauren Worsham: "My mother introduced me to musicals through the movies. She loved, and therefore, I loved, Annie, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Sound of Music and The Music Man."
Lauren Worsham: "She is the strongest, most beautiful woman I know and I can only hope to grow into one tenth of the person she is."
