KING CHARLES III
Its been eight years since
you were last on Broadway.
When did it really sink in that
We added more choreography
last night, and today I woke up
Oh,

Youre in a musical.

I couldnt have
done this before
New Black
. Ive been out of Juil-
liard for almost four years and
auditioned for a lot of shows,
and I think God has a funny way
of saying, No, no, no... Because
this is the one you need to be
making your Broadway debut
in. Im grateful for the nos.

Its so special how
our timelines have converged.
Were on the same journey: If
one needs help, the other two
are there to pick her up.
What are you counting on
one another for the most?
BROOKS
Im juggling a lot trying
to do

Color Purple
at the same time. Theyve been
so gracious being there for
me, even if they dont know it.
ERIVO
My role is super heavy,
and there are times when my
head will be literally spinning.
HUDSON
Were all going through
BROOKS
And the piece is about
sisterhood, so how can you not
bond with two other sisters
on a similar path, doing their irst
Broadway show in one of the
most American classic pieces?
What makes this show so
special for you?
BROOKS
I saw the original when
I was 15, ten years ago. It was
my irst Broadway show, and my
dad took me all the way from
South Carolina. It was so trans-
formative to see people on
as myself. And now its full circle,
the thing that made me want

these things are still happening,
and so to see women come

Cynthia starred in this show

she brought to it here?

I could not be more
honored to work with both of

certain levels dont know how to
be open in that way. Its great for
me to watch to see what kind
ofI hate this wordcelebrity
I can be. I dont have to be nasty.
HUDSON
Oh, thats the worst
misconception. One of my irst
theater directors told me, its
not about how good you are
but how good you are to work
with. Im not here for the
celebrity. All I care about is the
craft. How awful would it be
if I was this bitch that came in?
I dont even begin to know how
to do that. When you see us
crying, thats real tears. Thats
not just Shug crying for Celie
thats Jennifer crying, proud
of Cynthia and Danielle.
