Renee Elise Goldsberry and her son Benjamin were among those in attendance at the ‘School Of Rock’ Broadway Opening Night at Winter Garden Theatre on December 6, 2015 in New York City.
Goldsberry, who currently stars as Angelica Schuyler in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical Hamilton, has no qualms about performing in front of her son. In fact, the six-year-old has been to his mom’s show a few times.
“There are moments during the show that I think a lot about him—so I thought when he was there that I would be a wreck, because I am impacted by family or friends when I know a certain moment will resonate with them personally, but ironically when he was there I was more staid. I feel like my character is stronger and less vulnerable when he’s there, maybe subconsciously, to protect him. The beauty of my character is that she can be all those things,” Renee said in a recent interview.
Goldsberry is also mom to daughte Brielle,who was born in 2013.
