On hand for the event were Oscar nominee and Broadway veteran Julianne Moore, the author of the popular Freckleface Strawberry book series, which is based on her own life, along with her 9-year old-daughter Liv; Tony Award winner Billy Crudup with his 8-year-old son Atticus; and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, who brought her 6-year-old daughter Alice.
At the event, Moore and Fey briefly chatted with TheaterMania about their love for children's theater and the possibility of their own talents gracing the New York stage in the near future.
THEATERMANIA: Tina, you're seeing Peter PANtomime today? What is your favorite memory of Peter Pan?
TINA FEY: All of my favorite Peter Pan memories are actually memories of sharing it with Alice as she was growing up. She went through a serious, probably two and-a-half-year intensive Peter Pan phase, where it was all we read and all we talked about every single day. I was Wendy once for Halloween with Alice, and she was Peter Pan and her daddy [writer and musician Jeff Richmond] was Captain Hook.
TM: When are we going to see you on the Broadway stage?
TF: Oh my goodness, I would love to do that someday! My husband is a composer and he's had shows up in Chicago and here at Ars Nova when we first moved here. I still have aspirations to do a Mean Girls musical, but we can't do anything until my TV series, 30 Rock ends.
TM: What would be your dream stage role?
TF: Marlene in Caryl Churchill's Top Girls. Definitely.
