Digital series Working Out The Kinks continues to capture how the lives of African American women who have decided to “go natural” is shaped and influenced by their hair in season two, which is focused on the rapidly growing natural hair movement and how the careers, love life, and identities of African American women is directly influenced by their hair.
I recently interviewed the creator of the series, J Nycole, where she chatted about the show, natural hair in general and her next career and creative endeavors. She is a critically acclaimed actress, who plays Jada in the sassy series. J Nycole Ralph started performing in The Book of Mormon on Broadway in NYC and is now a cast member in the Broadway touring production! She’s also a critically acclaimed actress known for her roles as Consuela and Anita in the Broadway tour of West Side Story directed and choreographed by Broadway creative team David Saint and Joey McKneely, respectively.
Ms. J Nycole is also the co-founder of the theater company, Laugh With You, which was one of the few theater companies that not only paid their actors and playwrights within the first year, but also celebrated profits within that first year.
