WATCH: A 'Heart of Rock and Roll' Conversation

Date: May 30, 2024

Tamika Lawrence and McKenzie Kurtz on the healing power of musical comedy

---

Tamika Lawrence and McKenzie Kurtz love making audiences laugh. And they both get to do that a lot in Broadway's The Heart of Rock and Roll, the new musical rom-com featuring the hits of Huey Lewis and the News. Lawrence is Roz, a no-nonsense HR manager with a wild side, while McKenzie is Cassandra, the number-crunching boss who falls for a rock-and-roll-playing employee. We brought these costars together to chat about amusing onstage mishaps, their favorite audience interactions and why they love sharing, to paraphrase Huey Lewis, "The Power of Laughs." If you weren't able to tune in live you can watch a recording below. Captions are available.
