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 Pinkins 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.
See you bright and early tomorrow, BroadwayWorld!
