“My First Show” is back for a very special second season, a “mini-season,” celebrating Broadway and the Tony Awards. As we look to the return of live theater, Eva talks to a powerhouse Broadway mother-daughter duo: Tony Award winner LaChanze and Celia Rose Gooding, a Tony Award nominee for her portrayal of Frankie in Jagged Little Pill. Families who stick together quarantine together, and these two are certainly making the most of their time under one roof. LaChanze explores her start in dinner theater (where dinner was part of the paycheck), path to Broadway, and work with Black Theater United. Celia looks back on her journey with Jagged, and how time in the role—and away from the role—has continued to shape her into the artist and activist she is today.
