This was right before I saw my last Broadway show of 2020. Our industry, like many, is going through it right now. But my heart is thinking most of the 18 year old theater kids who may not get to go to school next year. College is where this passion of mine became a profession: where I felt surrounded by people who wanted to make my dreams a reality. To every 18 year old who can’t go to school next year, this is my message: VOTE. Vote like your life depends on it. BECAUSE IT DOES. Our current leadership’s inability to effectively call this virus for what it is and contain it DIRECTLY affects not just your education, but your future. My heart is with you. Let’s get back to pursuing our dreams. Step 1: See you at the ballot box.
See you all tonight for the final @votesaveamerica training. After a month of inspirational and informational sessions as to how we can win in 2020, now the pressure is on US to put that talk into action. If you need a little fire today, listen to The Daily podcast, beginning with: “A few battleground states will decide this election.” YUP.
