Phylicia Rashad, otherwise known as Clair Huxtable from “The Cosby Show,” made her debut in “August: Osage County” Tuesday night on Broadway. Rashad is playing “Violet Weston, the brittle, uncensored drug-abusing matriarch of an Oklahoma family,” according to the New York Times. Wait, isn’t the rest of the Weston family white? As a result of some “nontraditional casting, Ms. Rashad inherits a white stage family of three daughters, a husband, a sister and other relatives.” Well, if anyone can pull that off, we bet it’s Phylicia.
