The 35-year-old actress stars as Joanna Lyppiatt in the Noel Coward comedy, opposite Kevin Klein. Present Laughter officially opened last night (April 5) at the St. James Theatre in New York City.
“I don’t normally like to get very personal on social media but tonight is the opening of this woman’s Broadway debut,” Taran wrote on his Instagram post. “This woman, the kindest, most selfless, most stunning individual with the most educated heart I’ve ever encountered. She followed me to New York for my work and set a goal for herself. The only specific creative goal I’ve ever witnessed her commit to: perform in a play on Broadway. In these three years, she has jumped through many hoops; put herself out willingly and vulnerably, while still keeping a priority of being a superb mother and phenomenal partner.”
“She has been met with speculation, scrutiny and rejection but never gave up her commitment to her dream,” Taran continued. “And tonight, she realizes this dream. Something few people ever get to achieve. And she does it flawlessly. I have never been so overwhelmed with pride in my life. Congratulations, Cobie, you did it. Thank you for the inspiration and the incredible honor of being your husband.”
