6/∞ Audra McDonald
I used to practice Tony speeches in my bathroom with my hairbrush.I’ve always felt that I am a better actress when I’m singing than I am when I am just speaking. I think it’s because I’m more comfortable singing. What I am trying to do as an actress is to bring that abandonment that I find in singing, in line with the choices that I make as an actress. I don’t judge myself as much while I’m singing as I do while I’m acting.

Audra McDonald is one of those people that could sing the phone book and it would sound absolutely beautiful. And she’d win a Tony for it.

“When I was eight, I was confused about being called ‘bossy’ because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents. But the boys were not. When at 14, I started to be sexualized by certain elements of the media. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams because they didn’t want to appear ‘muscle-y.’ When at 18, my males friends were unable to express their feelings; I decided that I was a feminist.”

RAGTIME AND WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE IT (a semi-aggressive and really emotional presentation)


With the promise of happiness And the freedom he'll live to know He'll travel with head held high Just as far as his heart can go And he will ride Our son will ride On the wheels of a dream

With the promise of happiness
And the freedom he'll live to know
He'll travel with head held high
Just as far as his heart can go
And he will ride
Our son will ride
On the wheels of a dream
