All My Children alum Tonya Pinkins (ex-Livia Frye) is having a busy summer. The Tony winner starred in a virtual matinee last month to benefit the NAACP. Now, she's participating in a chat about necessary change in the American theater, as well as a podcast play.
On August 16, Pinkins will star in an audio drama as part of the Playing on Air series. Alongside Condola Rashad and Melanie Nicholls-King, Pinkins will act in Cell by Cassandra Medley. Playbill summarizes the plot:
When a jaded guard at an immigrant detention center finds jobs for her sister and niece, family tensions erupt into a battle over home and homeland security.
A discussion with the artists will follow each play.
