Last fall I was blessed enough to embark on a journey of a lifetime, #AmericanSonPlay. In these deeply divided times, I believe this show is MORE than a play. ❤️ #AmericanSonPlay is a prayer that we see each other. It is an exercise in listening to each other. It is a channel through which we can matter to one another. 8x’s a week, my castmates and I ( @stevepasquale @jeremymjordan & #EugeneLee) led by our brilliant director @iamkennyleon, walked onto the stage and dove into the depths of an experience that changed us forever. We are so grateful to every audience member who rode that roller coaster with us. AND we could not be more thrilled to now ride that roller coaster with ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! American Son will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12th! ARE YOU READY 🇨🇦⁉️ #TIFF19 #TIFF
Sunday night tea. Wanna tell me about something kind you’ll do this week?

Today is a day that we remember the revolutionary freedoms that the founders of this nation fought for. And today is the day that I pray that we live up to the potential of how much more beautiful this country will be when those 1st three words of our constitution “WE THE PEOPLE” actually include ALL of the people. #WeMatter. ALL OF US. And we deserve to enjoy the same basic human rights. And equal rights. And freedoms. And independence. I wish you a day filled with love and light and many freedoms - big and small. And if you are struggling today... this picture is for you. Hope it makes you smile. ❤️ #july4th
I am so inspired by this morning's conversation with Scott Mills, Craig E. Samitt, and Susan Goss Brown about the importance of #CivicResponsibility.

This @vanityfair portfolio shoot was soooo much fun! I had the pleasure of reuniting with my very first stylist @samiranasr while playing with some fun hair by @laceyredway and makeup by @gracegraceahn. Resulting in these STUNNING shots by @sebkimstudio. Thanks so much to all of you. Click the link in my bio to check out the piece written by @britthennemuth. Enjoy!
#Benefactory has partnered with charities helping people with legitimate asylum requests. We have less than 38 days before the Attorney General’s new ruling barring bail for asylum seekers will come into effect. That means they will face indefinite detention. #ActNow and head on over to @benefactory.live now and click the link in their bio to pledge your support now.
It begins. Day 1. #LittleFiresEverywhere Wish I could post more but... #EverythingIsASpoiler
