#FFB: NADIA BROWN
Photos & Interview by Jane Jourdan.
"Q: Can we start from the beginning… What’s been your journey to Broadway?
A: I began dancing at The Maria Priadka School of Dance at 6 years old, and began dancing competitively at the age of 10. I did not begin acting until I was a junior in high school, and was pleasantly surprised when I got into the BFA Acting program at Marymount Manhattan College. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and was awarded the Gold Key in Acting (the highest achievement for an Acting student at MMC) . After graduation, I began working professionally at regional theatres in New Jersey earning EMC points, I studied at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, and I earned my Equity card at The National Black Theatre in Harlem. I am still unrepresented (currently looking), and have always believed in self-submitting. In October 2018 I submitted myself through Actor’s Access for Rose Granger-Weasley and five rounds of callbacks later…booked Broadway." .......
