Kerry Washington Says She's 'Relieved' When New Broadway Play 'American Son' Is Over

Kerry Washington stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday (November 12) and talked all about her return to Broadway in new play, American Son!

“I try to rest on my day off,” the Emmy-nominated actress said of her typical Mondays. “The play is very intense, so it’s like being dropped into a nightmare for 80 minutes. I try to do stuff on my day off to calm my nervous system and my adrenals. This sounds so Hollywood—but get a massage, go to Pilates, but also play with my kids and spend time with my husband.”

Kerry talked about looking forward to greeting friends backstage post-performance: “I am so happy when the show is over because I don’t have to do it for another day,” she said. “When it’s over, I’m relieved. My friends come backstage and are like, ‘What was that?’ and I’m like, ‘What’s up?! It’s so good to see you!’”
