Father and Son: The Break

 In last night’s rehearsal, we built the emotional scaffolding for the moments before the final moment of act two, where Jalil breaks so deeply the sky opens up. Naturally, we watched one of the most iconic father-son moments on TV to date: Will Smith and his father in Fresh Prince of Belair. The story goes the moment at the very end of the scene, when Will smith breaks down saying “Why doesn’t he want me man?”and Philip Banks bear hugs him, wasn’t a scripted moment, but a genuine moment between the two actors. Check out the scene (It’s a tear jerker !):
