The wiki article below is about the parents of Micaela. Happy Reading!!!
Who Are Micaela Diamond Parents?
Micaela stars in the Broadway revival of Parade (which runs through August 6) alongside Ben Platt. The musical, Parade, which premiered in 1998, is based on the life of Leo Frank (Ben Platt), a Jewish man who was wrongly convicted of murder and subsequently executed in 1915 in Georgia. Micaela plays Lucille, the wife of Leo Frank, who seeks justice for her husband amidst the bombardment of antisemitism.
The new revival of Parade is the first Broadway production to feature Jewish actors in the role of Leo and Lucille. If it did not mean something, the crew probably would not have met neo-Nazi protestors from the group The National Socialist Movement on the first night of Broadway previews, February 21.
“So much of Lucille feels like me,” Micaela, who made her Broadway debut at 18 as Babe in The Cher Show, said about her new role. Micaela graduated from Fiorello LaGuardia High School in 2017 and right after, she went on Birthright, a not-for-profit that sponsors free ten-day heritage trips to Israel for young adults of Jewish heritage aged between 18 and 26. It was during her trip to Israel when she received the call that she’d landed her debut Broadway role.
The Tick, Tick… Boom! actress is reportedly close with her parents, especially her mother Karen, whom she calls her “favorite part of this world.” Continue reading to learn about them,
Meet Karen Diamond, Micaela Diamond Mother
Micaela’s mother, Karen Diamond, is the biggest supporter of her daughter and often acts for fun with her daughter as we saw in the Instagram post Micaela made on May 12, 2019.
In a Youtube interview released after Micaela made the news for appearing in the titular role of Babe in The Cher Show, Karen told that the first she knew her daughter had some talent was when she found Micaela very comfortable on stage (probably around the age of 10). As per Karen, Micaela would ask her and other people to watch her dance in her childhood.
After recognizing the talent Micaela possessed, Karen brought her to New York City at the age of 11 to help her pursue a career as a performer.
Reportedly, after Micaela landed the role in The Cher Show, her mother Karen was thrilled knowing her daughter had another powerful female role model to look up to. “I think the excitement of [Cher’s] life has made her more secure in who she is as a human. The role [is] about women empowerment, so how could you not want that for the first role for a 19-year-old?” Karen said.
