Tony Award-winner Sergio Trujillo on growing up in Toronto and landing in the U.S. as an illegal immigrant
There was a moment at the Tony Awards last Sunday night that was decades in the making. After 30 years on Broadway, first as a dancer and later as a choreographer, Sergio Trujillo won his first Tony Award.
The Toronto-raised choreographer used his acceptance speech to talk openly about arriving in the U.S. as an illegal immigrant and was met with a standing ovation. He joined q's Tom Power live from New York to share more about his journey with us.
Trujillo won a Tony Award for best choreography for his work on Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of The Temptations, which is playing now on Broadway.
