Whenever a broadway show recoups it is a milestone... and a rare one at that. especially for a limited run in one of the smaller playhouses on the great white way. so today’s news is exciting as an industry achievement alone. but beyond that - it is a declaration for our community. and for those of us who have the distinct privilege of representing that community eight times a week in front of standing room audiences absolutely wild with excitement - it is humbling to say the least. we are living through a time when an entire administration and a significant portion of the electorate would like to see us silenced. diminished. and transported back to the sociopolitical landscape which is the very backdrop of our story. but the success of this production tells a very different story. a story of visibility. of authenticity. of momentum. ours is a story of truth and progress and how far we’ve come. with my brothers in arms @mattbomer@charliecarver@brianhutchison3@robinofjesus@therealjimparsons@andrewrannells@michaelbwashington and @tucwatkins i stand in solidarity and in gratitude. it is an honor and a pleasure... and we still have four weeks to go! come be a part of this celebration with us. help amplify our voices and honor the voices of the past - the echoes of which are ringing all around us!
When i first graduated and started my career @backstagecast was a huge resource for insight and inspiration. all these years later i’m honored to be on the cover... but this image from inside with sweet skunk is the winner. thanks to everyone who made it happen!
