Emily Ratajkowski Supports Alan Cumming & 'Daddy' Cast at Off-Broadway Opening!

Emily Ratajkowski happily strikes a pose in-between Tommy Dorfman and Alan Cumming while attending the opening night party of their off-Broadway play Daddy held at the Green Fig Urban Eatery on Tuesday (March 5) in New York City.

The 27-year-old model-actress stepped out to show her support alongside Kate Walsh, Brandon Victor Dixon and Ismael Cruz Córdova.

Also in attendance at the party were Tommy and Alan’s co-stars Hari Nef, Charlayne Woodard, Ronald Peet, Danya Taymor, Kahyun Kim, Carrie Compere, Denise Manning and Onyie Nwachukwu.

In Daddy, the feverish link between young artist Franklin (Ronald) and older white collector Andre (Alan) deepens into an irresistible bond, pushing Franklin’s mother (Charlayne) into a battle of wills over the soul of the man they both call baby.

'Rent: Live' - See Over 100 Photos from the Show!

While most of Rent Live wasn’t actually live, it was still an incredible production with some amazing performances from cast members like Vanessa Hudgens and Brandon Victor Dixon.

There are so many great photos from the event and we had to share them with our readers!

Rent Live didn’t air live as previously planned due to Brennin Hunt‘s injury during the dress rehearsal on Saturday night. He broke his ankle and was unable to perform on Sunday night, but thankfully Fox filmed the dress rehearsal, so that was aired instead.

At the end of the performance, Rent Live finally did go live and the original Broadway cast of the musical appeared on stage for an incredible finale.

Rent Live's Brandon Victor Dixon Reveals Favorite Collins Song

Brandon Victor Dixon is a Broadway veteran who will be featured as Tom Collins in Fox’s production of Rent Live.

The 37-year-old actor is also no stranger to performing in live musicals on television after his star-turn in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, which earned him an Emmy nomination.

Brandon is opening up about his favorite Collins song in the musical.

“It’s probably the [I'll Cover You] reprise, but I have a great deal of fun with ‘Santa Fe’ as well. There are elements of each of them that I love,” Brandon told THR. “[The lyrics of] ‘Santa Fe’ … keep flipping from his idea of let’s open up a restaurant in Santa Fe to we’ll open up a restaurant in Santa Fe. … One of the things I love about our production is that we’re working very hard to make sure that people understand the urgency of the time and just the lack of anything to hold on to. You didn’t know what was going to happen the next day to you or anybody around you.”
