New York City Children’s Theater's Meet the Parent discussion series—hosted by Beautiful Tony nominee Anika Larsen, recently on Broadway in the new musical Almost Famous—will continue February 13 at 7:30 PM with a live streamed event on YouTube.
Joining Larsen, a mother of two, will be fellow Broadway parents Drew Gehling (Almost Famous, Waitress) and Jacques C. Smith (The Book of Mormon, Rent).
Larsen, a member of New York City Children’s Theater’s Board of Directors, says, “It was simply thrilling last season to have such honest and fun conversations with such fabulous and accomplished guests—not about their careers, but about the parenting happening alongside their careers. And it was especially gratifying to hear them say how excited they were to have conversations they otherwise never get to have. I can’t wait to do more deep diving this season into the joys and struggles of it all!”

Acting Executive Director Melanie Weinraub adds, “We are so fortunate to have the incomparable Anika Larsen hosting our Meet the Parent series! For three nights during the year, we invite parents to listen as Anika engages with special guests to discuss the trials and tribulations of being a parent and how their chosen career has (or hasn't!) influenced their parenting. It's a reminder that we all share a common humanity and gives us an opportunity to celebrate that!”
New York City Children's Theater's mission is to promote children's literacy and social development through accessible, professional theatre productions, and arts-in-education programs.
