Fresh off her award-winning debut feature film RED PILL which she wrote, produced directed, and starred in, Tonya Pinkins returns to the New York Stage after a seven-year hiatus and to the Public Theater where she originated the role of Caroline in Caroline or Change as Lena Younger in Robert O’Hara’s visionary new rendition of RAISIN IN THE SUN.
Lena Younger has been played by some of the greatest actresses in history: Claudia McNeil, Bea Richards, Gloria Foster, and Phylicia Rashad. But, never has Mama been as fully realized as Tonya Pinkins has in this production.
We are honored to have Ms. Pinkins join us on the Black Women Amplified podcast. And thrilled for the time to speak with us during her triumphant return to the New York stage.
Her warmth and honesty are refreshing. This Tony Award-winning actor in film, television, and stage has been featured in Scandal, The Walking Dead, 24, Women of the Movement, Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Enchanted, and countless other works.
