Much Ado About Nothing is probably my favorite Shakespeare play, so I wanted to combine Billie’s version with David’s version! Billie was a great Hero, I liked that she didn’t really get back together with Claudio in the end, but I think she’d make a great Beatrice, too!
I think my role is to shut up and listen. A lot of white people should shut up and listen. They really don’t know what the African-American experience truly is. When you have people getting shot in their cars for no reason and being put in fucking jail cells and it’s for profit, we have a serious problem, and the first thing you need to do is get educated. Don’t try to do this, like, ‘Blue lives matter.’ Don’t try to do the 'All lives matter.’ Just shut up and listen to the experience. And then move forward after that.
