Broadway stars Laura Benanti and Steven Pasquale are ending their marriage of nearly six years.
In a statement to Broadway.com, the pair said: “After almost six years of marriage, Steven Pasquale and Laura Benanti are amicably filing for divorce. They remain loving and committed friends.”
Benanti and Pasquale were married on September 16, 2007 in Andover, New Jersey, having first met while co-starring in a concert staging of The Secret Garden two years earlier.

He’s best known for his work on TV in the acclaimed series Rescue Me and in the recent short-lived Do No Harm.
