Audra McDonald: For me, I am constantly forcing myself to evolve, because, I think, to stagnate creatively — there’s a certain death that happens with that. Because if you’re not moving forward and you’re not evolving, you’re devolving, and I don’t want to go backwards. I want to be better at what I do tomorrow than I am today. I don’t want to be worse. It may be in a different way, or maybe I’ve turned a corner and tried a different part of a career, or maybe I’ll take my big mouth and maybe do something at a more political level somewhere down the road, or teach or something like that. But it has to be a constant sense of evolution. Yeah, I equate it with death.
