Broadway star Adrianna Hicks joins The Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul to discuss acts of kindness during her Tony-winning new musical Some Like It Hot, the delights of working with Christian Borle and J Harrison Ghee, lessons learned from Jennifer Holiday during The Color Purple, self-kindness and so much more.
Adrianna Hicks fell in love with performing at a young age, singing in church choirs in Texas. The musical theatre bug bit her bad in high school, prompting her to study it at University of Oklahoma.
After racking up a slew of regional credits and tours under her belt, Adrianna made her Broadway debut in 2015 as a swing in The Color Purple. You’ll find out during our discussion that this was truly a magical full circle moment. She went on to perform in Aladdin on Broadway and more recently, to originate the role of Catherine Aragon in the hit musical Six.
Adrianna is currently (well depending on when you listen to this) playing the iconic role of Sugar in the Tony-winning sensation Some Like It Hot. You may know the part as being minted in Hollywood history by Marilyn Monroe during the late 50’s MGM film, but Hicks brings her own joy and magic to the updated story.
