VIDEO: Annaleigh Ashford Talks Working with Stephen Sondheim on LATE NIGHT

B POSITIVE will air two new episodes tonight, January 27, on CBS.

Annaleigh Ashford appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to discuss the new season of B Positive, which is currently in its second season on CBS.

During the interview, Ashford discussed her memories working with the late Stephen Sondheim during the 2017 revival of Sunday in the Park with George.

"One thing that keeps coming back to me was how, as an artist, he was never done. One of the most famous lines in Sunday in the Park with George is: 'Anything you do, let it come from you, then it will be new. Give us more to see,' and for all of us who want to make art, that should be a mantra and it was for him," Ashford said.
