The newest cast member of The Walking Dead tv series is a Chicago theatre scene regular, one who’s active behind the scenes as often as in front of the footlights!
We’re talking about Danai Gurira, who will be playing the fan-favorite, kick-zombie-butt heroine Michonne!
Her newest play, The Convert, is currently holding center stage at The Goodman Theatre where she’s one of the Creative Partners.
Previously, she had been both the co-writer and one of the two lead actresses of In the Continuum., also at The Goodman Theatre.
If you want to see Danai’s current play, The Convert, you’d better order tix NOW! It closes this weekend on March 25th!
And, watch this column for more coverage (including photo galleries) of award-winning playwright/actress Danai, both on stage and (as Michonne) on screen.
