She'll be here at Berkeley Rep with her new show, Let Me Down Easy, at the end of May, but on Wednesday Anna Deavere Smith was invited to the White House by First Lady Michelle Obama as part of a Women's History Month event.

Read more in the Chicago Sun-Times -- here's an excerpt:

"Mrs. Obama will bring together more than twenty accomplished women, each paving their way in a variety of fields, to serve as mentors and share their experiences with students in the Washington, D.C. metro area. These women will showcase the important role mentoring can play in the lives of young people as they encourage all students, particularly young women, to pursue their dreams."
