|BET article about LaChanze and her daughter: nice sentiment, sloppy journalism|

|Some friends of mine posted this article on social media, which overall is a nice, positive piece about LaChanze appearing in A CHRISTMAS CAROL while her daughter appears in JAGGED LITTLE PILL.
But the poor reporting skills bothered me: The journalist made the claim that LaChanze and her daughter are the first mother-daughter duo to ever appear on Broadway at the same time.
Offhand I immediately recalled Rosemary Harris performing in WAITING IN THE WINGS while her daughter Jennifer Ehle appeared in THE REAL THING at the same time back in 2000. I would imagine there must be other examples. Even if the reporter's claim were more specific (for example, stating they are the first African-American mother-daughter duo to simultaneously appear on Broadway), I would still be wary. It is rather bold to make such an assertion without doing any bit of research!
Nonetheless, I'm happy for LaChanze and her daughter to be recognized, and wish them both success in their shows.
