A Conversation with Phylicia Rashad

An intimate evening during which Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad will share stories about her life and career, and will answer questions from the audience. Ms. Rashad became a household name for her portrayal of Claire Huxtable on The Cosby Show, a character whose appeal has earned her accolades for over two decades. While TV was a catalyst in the rise of her career, she has been a constant force on the stage. Ms. Rashad received both the Drama Desk and the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for her riveting performance as Lena Younger in the Broadway revival of A Raisin in the Sun. Ms. Rashad will be at Ten Chimneys to serve as the Master Teacher for the 2015 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program, a national program to serve the future of American theatre. July 12-19, ten of the nation’s top regional theatre actors will join Ms. Rashad for an intensive, weeklong master class and immersion experience at Ten Chimneys.

The Concluding Presentation of the 2015 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program

Tony Award-winning actress Phylicia Rashad and ten of our country's top regional theater actors will take the stage together for a rare look at the work they explored during their week at Ten Chimneys as part of the 2015 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program.

Since its inception in 2009, the Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program, conceived and executed by Ten Chimneys Foundation, has brought the nation’s top regional theatre actors to Ten Chimneys to work with a world renowned Master Teacher. Ten Chimneys Foundation is honored to welcome Phylicia Rashad as the 2015 Master Teacher. Past Master Teachers include Lynn Redgrave, Barry Edelstein, Olympia Dukakis, Joel Grey, Alan Alda, and David Hyde Pierce.

Through this groundbreaking national program, the top actors in the country are given a rare and deeply needed opportunity to grow artistically, renew their passion for their art form, deepen their commitment to mentorship, and form a national community of Lunt-Fontanne Fellows. The 2015 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Class will delve into roles that are "against type" and will allow the ten Fellows to engage in parts that differentiate from the characters they may typically play.
