Denée Benton—"Following Your Bliss" (Episode 20)



“Unfortunately if the creative team is all-white, you see yourself first, and being a minority in any type of setting, you are taught to see more than yourself, because you have to, because the world around you doesn't really reflect you.”

In the season 1 finale, we talk with Tony nominee Denée Benton about her epic Broadway debut turned Tony nomination as Natasha in Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, her dramaturgical Black Princess Project, and her commitment to continuing the momentum of representation.
