When accepting the 2019 Tony Award for best featured actor in a musical for his role as Hermes in Hadestown, André De Shields shared his three cardinal rules for sustainability and longevity in the arts:
1. Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you coming.
2. Slowly is the fastest way to get to where you want to be.
3. The top of one mountain is the bottom of the next, so keep climbing.
You will have the opportunity to discuss these rules and more when you meet the tour-de-force himself on Zoom. These rules have clearly proven valuable as De Shields has had an illustrious career, spanning more than 50 years. He first made a splash on Broadway as the title role in the Tony Award-winning The Wiz. De Shields went on to win an Emmy Award for the NBC adaptation of Ain?t Misbehavin?. He also was nominated for Tony Awards for his performances in Play On! and The Full Monty. Your virtual meeting with this celebrated Broadway luminary is sure to keep your heart singing ?again and again and again.?
This 20 minute virtual meeting is to be scheduled on a mutually agreeable date before December 18, 2020.
