Kara Lindsay, who stars as Katherine Plumber in the Disney musical Newsies, tied the knot with former Memphis cast member Kevin Massey this weekend in New Jersey, the couple confirmed to Playbill.com.
Lindsay and Massey, who wed June 2 at Lake Valhalla Club in Montville, NJ, met while starring opposite each other in the East Coast premiere of Little House on the Prairie, which bowed in 2009 at New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse.
In Little House, Lindsay played Laura Ingalls Wilder, with Massey as her onstage love interest Almanzo Wilder. The couple was engaged May 31, 2012.
"We had the best night of our lives and felt so loved," the couple said to Playbill.com via email. "Definitely on Cloud Nine right now. Just goes to show, ya never know…You may fall in love just as it says in your script."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
