“I love when people are talking in response to the play and I love that because that’s where theater started. It was a dialogue between the audience and the actors,” explained Thomas who works as a actor, writer and producer. She has worked on the CBS series “The Good Wife,” and “As the World Turns” and will have her first studio role in the movie “Labor Day.”
“‘The Good Wife’ just keeps getting better and better I had a wonderful time on the set I played in an episode during the third season. I was a juror that came to a decision in a case. It was like being in a play there was a lot of improv and that show doesn’t usually have improv,” said Thomas of her time on the hit CBS show.
When she isn’t performing, Thomas enjoys cooking, spending time with family and friends and holding work shops for emerging artists. After her time in “Clybourne Park,” she will return to Harlem and hold a workshop.
“I want to empower artists because we need to have the capacity to make a living at this. Sometimes we just want to get the reward. But we are in such a fortunate time to have resources at our fingertips and we have ways to keep track of people who are doing what you want to do and use that as a measuring stick,” Thomas said.
“Clybourne Park” will run at the Pittsburgh Public Theater until May 19. Tickets range from $29 to $60 and can be purchased by calling 412-316-1600 or visiting www.ppt.org.
