Expectations may be high for their new musical, which starts preview performances Tuesday, but right now they’re scrambling to get to the summer camp recital of their daughter Annie, 6, to see her perform the Meghan Trainor song “Dear Future Husband.” Later that afternoon, their daughter Katie, 10, has a camp show of her own.
