Meet the first actress to star on Broadway in a wheelchair


When she was 2 years old, Ali Stroker was in a car accident that left her paralyzed. Now she’s the first person in a wheelchair ever to star on Broadway, in a show called “Spring Awakening.” She’s also the daughter of TODAY anchor Willie Geist’s former high school basketball coach, Jim Stroker, who, she says, told her since childhood that she was a superstar, even as the world tried to close doors to her. Geist sits down with this daughter and father as they share their inspiring story.
