This is actually a 9/12 tale, which I find interesting because it changes how I view 9/11. My college graduation was over, and I was just about to start my next chapter at home. the city to audition. I just remember coming downstairs to my mom’s apartment and my sister was there as well. It was something we heard and saw. the We could be seeing news the plane hit the It was amazing.

Let’s see how it works the Do you feel the story speaks to you?

Knowing about it is better than not knowing. We need it now. While 9/11 was terrifying for me, I feel like this is the future of our world. in a direction that’s even harder and we need to know that and be reminded that we can be like that. This motivates us to do better and pay it forward. This is because of the world we live in right now. the Pandemics and All of It the grief that so many communities are going through, I think it’s so important and I’m so glad to be a part of this tour and take this message where we need it which is everywhere. I feel like lately, the The world is at an impasse. in It’s a strange place. the pandemic.

Let’s see how it works the This show makes pandemics seem real

It’s good to be reminded, we need to know that, we need it right now. It’s not a good place most times in people’s lives and families and how their lives are changing and how their lives could have changed during the pandemic. I think it’s really good to be reminded that people can be better. Everyone says that they relive. the It is true. Meeting different people in Cities and Telling the Story every night the show wherever we go we’re living in It is a gift of compassion that I wish to extend to all those who see it.

Let me know about your experiences with touring.

I don’t know that I really enjoy touring. It’s even more fun for me to be on stage with my son, now that I have one. He travels with me, my 16-month-old I’m actually speaking quietly when I’m in the Backroom, because I have a child (laughs). It’s a thought the The only thing that I love about touring is my company. We call it a bubble when you’re on tour because you go from city to city, place to place and the only thing that’s constant are the people. We have such a great rapport because as you’ve said, you’ve seen the show, it’s not a solo show we rely on everyone else to help us.

I pass my kid around to them when we’re on the plane, and when we’re at the airport. People I know at the Airports are like a random black woman giving her child to random white men (She giggled).
