Name: Thaddeus McCants
What is your current project? In the Room, Waiting.
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
In the Room, Waiting is being performed as part of the Broadway Bound Theatre Festival in NYC. I am so thrilled to be a part of a festival that puts playwrights and their work front and center and it couldn’t be a better fit for myself as a playwright and for the show as a whole. I am so excited to produce this story that is so near and dear to me as a person with such an incredible group of Actors of Color. I know audiences will love this originally told, heartfelt and funny script that questions fate, choice, and when the right time to bring a life into this world.
What’s next for you?
I am currently Acting in Lobby Hero @UNO, which was co-produced by myself and the University of New Orleans. I will be return to my home base in Brooklyn in July to begin rehearsals for In the Room, Waiting.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Sweat on Broadway.
Any advice for your peers?
