Exclusive Podcast: Go 'Behind the Curtain' with Tony-Winning Legend Tonya Pinkins
She is as passionate offstage as she is on and her philosophy on life, art, and everything in between, makes Tonya Pinkins one of Broadway's fiercest artists.
From her Broadway debut in Merrily We Roll Along, to appearances in Jelly's Last Jam (for which she won the Tony), The Wild Party, Play On, Caroline, Or Change, Radio Golf, and Holler If You Hear Me, plus her controversial associations with Mother Courage and Rasheeda Speaking, Tonya is one of the industry's most, no pun intended, courageous artists.
Tonya pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she went from rejection to victory in Jelly's Last Jam, what it was like creating Caroline, and why principles must outweigh art.
