Tonight on the Livestream: Tony Award Winner, Covid-19 Survivor and so much more, Brian Stokes Mitchell

I hear from a lot of people that they are busier than they have ever been during this crisis.

I’ve started saying this in response . . .

“Yeah, but no one is busier than Brian Stokes Mitchell.”

Stokes sprang into high gear as soon as Broadway shut down as the Chairman of The Actors Fund, the institution that is helping so many artists get through.

Then he was diagnosed with Covid-19.

He recovered (thank God) and started singing from his window as a thank you to the first responders.

Then, he sprang into action once again after the murder of George Floyd and co-founded Black Theatre United to help “protect Black people, Black talent and Black lives of all shapes and orientations in theatre and communities across the country.”

Doing one of these would have been plenty.

But that’s Stokes.

We’re going to talk to Stokes about all of the above TONIGHT on my livestream, as well as his incredible career in the biz and a heck of a lot more.

So, set your reminder for tonight’s episode here.

And look who’s joining me over the next few weeks:

Tuesday, August 25th – Patrick Page (Actor – Hadestown, Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark, The Hunchback of Notredame)

We’ll be making a special announcement next week for our September lineup! And you do NOT want to miss that.
