    I love the term “Sepia-Cast”! Lena Horne was called a Sepia Cinderella back in the day.
    I was lucky to see Pearl Bailey in Hello Dolly with an all black cast when I was a kid. She was amazing! She performed the last half of the show in red fuzzy slippers, and invited all the kids in the audience to come shake her hand after her curtain call. How could you not be a fan of Pearl after that?
