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.
