Tony Award Nominee Kenita Miller & Pearl Sun to Join Anika Larsen for NYCCT's MEET THE PARENT

The virtual event will take place on Monday, November 14th, at 7:30 p.m. 

New York City Children's Theater (NYCCT) - will present their first live stream of the MEET THE PARENT series hosted by Broadway actress (and mom) ANIKA LARSEN with guests Kenita Miller and Pearl Sun. The episode will stream live on YouTube and feature a lively, informative discussion between parents working in the theatre and entertainment community.

The virtual event will take place on Monday, November 14th, at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is free, but signups on their website are encouraged.

Ms. Larsen, the mother of two, can currently be seen on Broadway in ALMOST FAMOUS. She was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in the Carole King musical BEAUTIFUL and previously appeared on Broadway as Kate Monster in AVENUE Q. She is a member of the New York City Children's Theater Board of Directors.

Ms. Larsen 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!"

NYCCT's Meet the Parent is a discussion series created to provide programming for adult members of the NYCCT community that informs, inspires, and entertains them as caretakers and theater lovers.

In the past, Ms. Larsen's guests have included Cameron Crowe, Tom Kitt, Audra McDonald, Ann Harada, Joanna Gleason, Andrea Burns, and Peter Flynn. This season's events will be available to watch in full on our website: www.nycchildrenstheater.org.

NYCCT's Meet the Parent series covers wide-ranging topics that are sometimes universal, like managing a work/life balance, and sometimes very specific, like the challenges of being pregnant on a Broadway stage. These are intimate, heartfelt, and often hilarious conversations with artists about how life in the theater affects their parenting and how parenting affects their life in the theater.

New York City Children's Theater's mission is to promote children's literacy and social development through accessible professional theater productions and arts-in-education programs. Our programs cultivate children's growth in the areas of emotional intelligence, community building, and responsible decision-making. The result is empathetic, creative, and independent thinkers who make a positive impact on their world.

For over 25 years, New York City Children's Theater's local and nationally recognized arts-in-education programs and professional theater productions have served over 400,000 children and adults across all five boroughs and surrounding communities in the tri-state area.
