The Top 20 Most Popular Episodes countdown continues with #16, Grammy,Tony, Drama Desk, and Theater World Award winning actress/songstress, UK native, Cynthia Erivo, who has taken the world by storm in her star turn as Miss Celie in the Tony Award winning Musical Revival of The Color Purple. You can catch her AMAZING vocals on the Grammy Award Winning Cast Recording.
I saw her performance 3 separate times during the run, and at each performance, her eleven o'clock number stopped the show with thunderous applause and standing ovations. This interview happened in the press room right after she won the Drama Desk Award and a week before she won the Tony Award for that brilliant life changing performance. She is truly one of my favorite discoveries of the 2015-2016 season. She is just as fierce in person, as she is online. If you do not believe me, then you must check out her Twitter feed. Miss Thing will have you for LUNCH, if you try her patience with rudeness. Click here to hear our fab, albeit brief, chat.
