I had the privilege of seeing the preview of “The Convert,” by Zimbabwean American actress and playwright, Danai Gurira. I loved it so much, I decided to interview two cast members–Nancy Moricette and Dawn Ursula. These women are brilliant and incredible both on and off stage! “The Convert” is showing at the Woolly Mammoth from now until March 10th. You will be doing yourself a disservice if you miss it. (Watch the video on page 2. ->) The full interview is currently airing on MCM Channel 19 in Montgomery County.
