Montego Glover,was a previously unknown actress with a long list of voiceover credits (including the Charmin cartoon bear) but a short Broadway resume (understudying at The Color Purple). She stuck with the role of R&B singer Felicia Farrell through multiple out-of town productions of Memphis over six years-and the producers stuck with her when the show made it to Broadway. By the end of the season, Glover had a Drama Desk Award, a Tony nomination and an invitation to sing for the President at Ford's Theatre.
Here's what I've always loved about Broadway: that it accepts and prizes people who want to be actors in the theater. There are actors who live primarily on film and television, and other actors who live primarily in the theater. I don't think that Broadway can be any less welcoming of actors as long as those people are willing to do the kind of work that theater actors do. Eight performances a week of anything is hard work. And it should be recognized as such.
We're all in the same community; it's just a matter of recognizing that when it comes to the theater, it has to be about the work and never, ever, about anything else. For an actor, it's the hardest job there is.
