August:Osage County To Get New Matriarch Next Week

That's right theatre fans. Only six more days until Tony Winner and Television's favorite Mom Phylicia Rashad takes on the lead role of Violet Weston in the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner August:Osage County. Now I know when most people heard that "Claire Huxtable" would be taking on the crazy foul-mouthed Matriarch of the Weston family they were a little surprised.I for one am I all for it. I am a big believer of Non-traditional casting and if she can pull it off more power to her. I for one think she is going to be great and should breath some fresh air into this long running show. Now whether or not her presence in the show will make a boost at the box office is another story. We will soon find out. Until next time.
