DAY 48: Yvette Heyliger & Marjorie Johnson
Happy Presidents Day! These ladies have our vote!!
Yvette's socially-conscious plays have earned the praises of critics and more than a few awards - including SEVEN AUDELCO awards in 2010 alone for her piece WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? that addresses the growing rate of AIDS/HIV infection among African Americans. But she's not alone in her AUDELCO award-winning awesomeness, Marjorie's incredible performance in HOODOO LOVE right here at Cherry Lane earned an AUDELCO as well.
These ladies are a force to be reckoned with... check out their birthday wishes and a shout-out to America. They say "God Bless the USA" and we say "GOD BLESS THEM!"
