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 April 10 at 7:30 PM with a live streamed event on YouTube.

Joining Larsen, a mother of two, will be fellow Broadway parents, stage managers Beverly Jenkins (Hadestown, In the Heights) and Andrea Saraffian (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Follies).

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!”
