About the Show
This is MacKinnon’s first Tony nomination.
MacKinnon majored in economics and political science at the University of Toronto, and enrolled in a political science Ph.D. program at the University of California at San Diego before dropping out and heading to New York to pursue theater.
“I’ve known [Clybourne Park playwright] Bruce [Norris] for more than 15 years, and my first thought was truly that it’s really exciting to be going through this together. It’s gratifying personally and individually, but that’s really not what theater is, so you think, ‘Wow, this is what we’ve done.’” —MacKinnon in an interview with Broadway.com, 5/12
