Tony Award-Winning actress Phylicia Rashad taught master classes at the School of Drama Feb. 19-20, while in Pittsburgh to shoot PBS Master Series, “August Wilson- The Ground On Which I Stand.”

Rashad received a Tony nod for her appearance in Wilson’s GEM OF THE OCEAN on Broadway. She has also directed several of his plays.

Her work with our students this time around was particularly poignant as many of them are currently playing in the School of Drama production of The Wiz. Rashad’s Broadway debut was in the original Broadway production as a munchkin.
