Before long college loomed with Asher’s acceptance to Princeton and Micaela’s to Carnegie Mellon. But fate had a different path for each of them. Just days before she was to begin her studies in Pittsburgh, Micaela was cast as Babe in The Cher Show on Broadway, a role she would star in during the run of the play. College would have to wait while Broadway intervened. For her performance, she was honored with a Theatre World Award.

Asher, on the other hand, took a leave of absence from Princeton when he was asked to join the National Touring Company of Dear Evan Hansen, understudying the roles of Jared and Connor. Once again, college would have to wait.
