Tonya Pinkins to Join Playwrights Horizons' Milk Like Sugar
The play concerns 16-year-old Annie, an inner-city girl who struggles between the pregnancy pact she made with her friends and her need to carve out a life beyond the only one she knows.
The cast also includes Cherise Boothe, Angela Lewis, LeRoy McClain, J. Mallory-McCree, Nikiya Mathis, and Adrienne Moore. The entire company - including Pinkins - are currently starring in the play at the La Jolla Playhouse.
The production will feature scenic design by Mimi Lien, costume design by Miranda Hoffman, lighting design by Justin Townsend and sound design by Andre Pleuss.
