“In the past I wasn’t always made aware of the weight I had on my shoulders as far as being a man of color in musical theatre. It wasn’t until I moved to New York where I really started to feel that, and the pride that comes along with that weight. Even more so in the past two years…I felt that so intensely.”
We take a trip to Webster Avenue as we talk with A Bronx Tale’s Bradley Gibson about a black actor’s double consciousness, the esteemed Ragtime performance on Ellis Island, and his legendary Cerulean suit.
Shout out to: Cynthia Erivo (Bonus: Stephanie Umoh)
