When A Raisin in the Sun was making it's original debut to unprecedented numbers of African American audience members - the director, incognito, asked a patron why she was coming to see the show. The patron, an older woman, replied, "I heard there was something here that concerns me". This statement drives the crux of my service as an actor. My goal is to push work that is in true communication with the communities we are serving, and thusly concerns people. My people. Lord willing, and the creek don't rise.
