Ali Stroker, Jeremy O. Harris & More Included on Time's 100 Next List
Time has just released its 2019 100 Next list, consisting of artists, leaders, advocates, innovators and phenoms on the rise. Included in this year's list is 2019 Tony winner and star of Oklahoma!, Ali Stroker, Broadway veteran Beanie Feldstein, Pose star MJ Rodriguez, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris.
Of Ali, Kristin Chenoweth writes: "Ali's success tells us that the rules have changed. That through hard work, training and fearlessness, future Broadway actors and actresses with disabilities can also take center stage. And while there is no doubt she has inspired her community, she has inspired me as well."
Playwright Lynn Nottage writes of Harris: "Jeremy is a playwright with a mission, and he has made it his business to open up Broadway and beyond to a new generation of theatergoers by ensuring that young and diverse audiences have access to contemporary storytelling."
