RECORDING: A Conversation with Actor & Singer Imani Russell, a Star of the New Broadway Musical How to Dance in Ohio

Visible & Invisible Disabilities and Neurodivergence

We are thrilled to be joined in conversation by actor & singer Imani Russell, one of the stars of the upcoming Broadway musical How to Dance in Ohio. Based on the award-winning HBO documentary, How to Dance in Ohio is a heart-filled new musical exploring the need to connect and the courage it takes to step out into the world. The show will include autistic actors, including Imani in the seven principal roles. We talk to Imani about making their Broadway debut, the journey of their character Mel, their process as an actor in the show and their own experience as an autistic person in the workplace.
