The stars of Broadway's first play since March 2020 talk about making history
Opening a show is always intense, but as the first play on Broadway in almost 18 months, Pass Over faces some unique challenges. Yet stars Jon Michael Hill, Namir Smallwood and Gabriel Ebert are still thankful to be back on stage doing what they love in a show they have a long history with. Three years ago, the trio appeared in Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu's critically acclaimed one-act at Lincoln Center's Claire Tow Theater. Now they're reprising their roles in a revised version of this powerful play inspired by Waiting for Godot, the biblical story of Exodus and the ongoing reckoning with racism in our country. TDF is bringing these Pass Over stars together for an intimate chat about the work's urgency, the responsibility of reopening Broadway and the lessons they hope the theatre industry has learned during the shutdown. Join us on Wednesday, August 18 at 3 p.m. ET on TDF's Facebook page or our YouTube channel for this poignant discussion.
