Chandra Wilson Takes the Chicago Stage

by at . Comments

Enjoying a nice summer break from her day job, Grey’s Anatomy star Chandra Wilson steps in to the celebrated role of Matron “Mama” Morton in the hit musical Chicago.

The 39-year-old actress will be in the Broadway show for a four-week limited tenure starting Monday, June 8. Here's Chandra in a different role than we normally see:

Wow, this must be amazing! Chandra's a great actress and IMO an excellent choice for that role. I love the musical, I -also- wish I could see her in it :)

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
