Kerry Washington is finally gettin’ her feet wet in the world of theater. Ole girl is going to rep her acting chops on Broadway in the play “Race” by famed playwright David Mamet.
*Kerry Washington has joined Emmy Award winners Richard Thomas and James Spader in the cast of David Mamet’s Broadway play “Race.”
The play is scheduled to begin previews on November 17 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre and will open on December 6.
Mamet, who wrote and will direct the production, has been secretive about what his play is about. Since its announcement last spring, no official information about the storyline has been revealed.
Washington has starred in the films “The Last King of Scotland” and “Ray.” Her screen credits also include “Life Is Hot in Cracktown,” “Lakeview Terrace,” “Woman in Burka,” “Put It in a Book” “I Think I Love My Wife,” “The Dead Girl,” “Little Man,” “Boston Legal,” “Wait,” “Sexual Life,” “Against the Ropes,” “The Human Stain” and “Bad Company,” among others.
Race will mark her Broadway debut.
We’re sure she’ll do well. Much better than Ashanti’s non-acting @ss.
