This week on Inside Broadway, Christine Nagy and Michael Riedel chat with Ain't Too Proud director Des McAnuff and actor Jahi Kearse (Berry Gordy) about the success of the production. They discuss the inspiration for the show, and how a story from the past makes you reflect on our country today.
Kearse revealed when he knew how moving and successful this production would become, "Two weeks after the initial audition, I told my agent that I don't mind if I don't audition for anything else for a while because this show was that impactful to me... I just wanted to be a part of it!" The success translated on stage with sold out performances and 12 Tony Award nominations.
