Sheryl Kaller finds her calling on Broadway
(Page 3 of 3)
Playwright Terrence McNally (from left), with cast members Frederick Weller, Tyne Daly and Bobby Steggert, and Director Sheryl Kaller, are delighted that McNally’s newest play, “Mothers and Sons,” has arrived on Broadway.
New York has also taken notice of her talents, which included a Tony Award nominated Broadway debut with “Next Fall” in 2010, and Roundabout Theatre Company’s off-Broadway production of “Too Much, Too Much, Too Many” in 2013. Next she’ll be directing “Kinky Boots” star Billy Porter’s new play, “While I Yet Live,” for off-Broadway’s Primary Stages. But with Mothers and Sons’ recent opening, Kaller is elated at the potential ways in which the play could help people to change their modes of thought.
“Mothers and Sons is important to Long Islanders, as well as to everybody who thinks there is anything different about the gay community and family,” she says of why people should get on the LIRR (a fond memory of city trips past), and check out her powerful piece of theater. “It’s also important for people who don’t feel that way, because we’re absolutely celebrating how far we’ve come.”
Kaller ponders this sentiment for a moment. “This is a play about four generations of people, and a celebration of family. I want people to talk about it at dinner, and take away with them that people can change. Sometimes change is hard thought, but if we stay in there and really believe in each other, people can change.”
