She was one of Broadway’s most respected singers, garnering two Tony nominations for her work in Raisin and the 1976 revival of Guys and Dolls. Now, Ernestine Jackson sits down with Rob and Kevin to look back on her career which includes stints in Hello, Dolly, The Bacchae, Applause, Show Boat, Finian’s Rainbow, Brownstone, and many more! Ernestine pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how she went from the United Nations to the Great White Way, what was it like sharing the stage with legend Lauren Bacall, and why Pearl Bailey kept performing on the night Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated.  Also, Ernestine shines the spotlight on David Merrick, Morgan Freeman, and Robert Guillame!  Become a sponsor of Behind The Curtain and get early access to interviews, private playlists, and advance knowledge of future guests so you can ask the legends your own questions.
