Daughters Galore

I played Father in Little Women, where I was the father of 4 girls. I played Mr. Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, where I was the father of 4 5 girls.

And now I am playing Cinderella's Father in Into The Woods, where I am the father of 3 girls.

Or perhaps I am the biological father of one and merely the stepfather of the 2 evil stepsisters. I haven't read the whole script yet. I just stepped in today, when someone else had to step out of the role.

In real life, I have a son.
But on stage, not one.

UPDATE: A big thank you to Shannon for correcting my memory as to the number of daughters I had in Pride and Prejudice.  What a bad father I am for letting Mary slip from my mind, however briefly!
