Kerry Washington Dishes On Her Post-‘Scandal’ Career Plans

 

Kerry Washington’s time on “Scandal” is coming to an end this month and the actress is dishing on her next career moves.

“I was doing a play on Broadway when I read the script for “Scandal,” TV’s Oliva Pope explains on “Live with Kelly and Ryan Wednesday, April 11. “I was at dinner with my mother and I was like, ‘You know what? I’m officially back in New York.’ And she was like, ‘Don’t say it. That means you’re gonna get something big over in California.’ And that’s what happened.

“But I’ve been missing theatre,” she adds. “So I think I might come back to do a little theatre.”

Washington debuted on Broadway as Susan in 2009’s “Race” and had done stage work four years earlier as an understudy in the West End production of “Billy Elliot.” With her experience, she’s no stranger to the demands of life under theatre lights.

“After you do a show where you’re doing 16-hour days and memorizing a new monologue every day, you’re like, ‘Yeah I want to say the same words for a few months,'” Washington says mentioning “Scandal.” “Our show is so cool with the live-tweeting, but I miss being in the room. There’s something very communal about theatre and being able to tell the same story.”

If Washington does return to the Broadway stage, she’ll be greeted by plenty of fans in the audience.

“@kerrywashington so are you being serious about coming to Broadway?” one fan tweeted. “Because if so, I will come see you every day .”

“@kerrywashington theatre is amazing and it’s where nearly all actors began,” someone else said. “But it’s so great because every show is the same but different due to it being live. Would love to see you on stage.”
