Musical Matters explores inclusivity and representation in American musical theatre with artists from historically marginalized communities. This exclusive five-part series is hosted by actor, writer, and advocate for inclusion, Christine Toy Johnson.
Actress Andréa Burns (In the Heights) and three-time Tony Award-winning actress Chita Rivera (West Side Story, Chicago) discuss how representation has changed throughout their careers, the differences between type casting versus stereotyping, and the relationship between authenticity and artistry.
