Acting alongside one’s own child is a truly wonderful opportunity for any actor, and for me, it’s an extra-special experience; not only do I get to share the stage of the Jarson-Kaplan with my nine-year-old son, Leo, but I get to play his mother! When I’m not waltzing as Mrs. Darling with my little man onstage, I’ll be watching in the wings while he flies high (courtesy of ZFX Flying Effects) as Michael Darling in Cincinnati Music Theatre’s spectacular production of Peter Pan at the Aronoff Center for the Arts.
With Joshua Steele in the title role and Wayne Wright as Captain Hook, and under the skillful and heartfelt direction of Skip Fenker, it promises to be an unforgettable Very Big Adventure. The show runs May 9-17, and tickets can be purchased at the Aronoff Center box office.
