Tony Nominee Shalita Grant Performs a Monologue from ‘Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike’

shalita-grant-in-performanceThe New York Times has a feature called, In Performance, featuring actors doing monologues from shows, films and theatre and they’ve all been pretty great.

Recently, they’ve invited some Broadway actors to go on location as part of their series. In this video, the great Shalita Grant performs a “cinematic interpretation” from Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, where she plays a waitress predicting gloom and doom.

Shalita, who I interviewed last week, is up for a Tony Award for her performance in Vanya and Spike this weekend and I’m crossing my fingers that she wins!

Check it out below!
