Dionne's Episode: Pre-Production (#71)

Where are you from? Washington, DC

Broadway credits: Hot Feet, Memphis, Leap of Faith, Motown

How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I honestly don't remember. I must have received a call from production, because I didn't have an agent at that time.

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? SNOB, Saturday Night On Broadway is my favorite event. And it happens every week!

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? I'm fascinated by costume design. Paul Tazewell, Gregg Barnes and Esosa are some of my favorite costume designers currently working in theater.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? I recently read Grace Jones' memoirs, and they have inspired me to take more risks. I’m also playing Lianne La Havas and KING's new music on repeat.  

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be... Ice Cube. I love Ice Cube! He went from being a gangsta rapper with NWA to making movies in Hollywood. And he never stopped being his authentic self.

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose... Rihanna. Since I only get one day, I wanna have some fun, play in her wardrobe, take some serious fashion and hair risks, maybe do a cool photo shoot, all the while unapologetically smoking blunts.

To be successful in this business, it takes... Talent, perseverance, confidence, and really good professional relationships/connections. I hear having 10K followers on social media couldn't hurt either, but I wouldn't know since I have like 10 followers.  

Tell us a secret. I get my hair cut at barbershops so I can observe men in their natural environment.  They are much cooler when they are just with their kind.
