This morning, Lin revealed that Kerry was Nina in one of the early In the Heights workshops. So, that means she can sing to some extent. As a result, what musicals do you think she could good/great in?
Mr Roxy said "Race" was going to jumpstart the discussion of race in the US. So it must have been typical end stage Mamet reactionary conservatism?
Can you spell obsessions boys and girls?
Just saw that tweet about Washington as Nina in IN THE HEIGHTS. Mandy Gonzalez was pretty definitive in the role so it's hard for me to imagine anyone else originating the role, but I'd love to hear Washington's rendition of some of the songs.
I'd really like to see Washington sink her teeth in something by Lynn Nottage or August Wilson, certainly something stronger than whatever "end stage Mamet," as FindingNamo said, could write for her.
This is hard for me to write, because I usually say I don't see race... but I did see Race in this special instance, and thought she was fine, but the part didn't give her much to do.
Saw Race and enjoyed it. Can not say the same for The Anarchist.
Kerry Washington for Dolly Levi or Mame Dennis. In either the plays OR musical treatments of the material!
She was not good in Race. I still talk about that performance.
She did workshop as Nina in the early 2000s in In The Heights. I wonder how her singing voice is.
At this point in her career, she could probably pretty much play any stage role she was interested in.
