Ms. Broadway January 2011: De'Adre Aziza

WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: Her Broadway career may be a relatively short one, but De'Adre Aziza has worked with some of the very best in the business.  Her list of co-stars and co-workers reads like a Who's Who of American Musical Theatre: Patti LuPone, Bartlett Sher, David Yazbeck, Stew, Daniel Breaker, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Laura Benanti and Rebecca Naomi Jones When I decided to feature her, her most recent project, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown would have still been running as of today.  But no matter!  She is still deserving of recognition as one of Broadway's up and coming big talents.

INFO:

Most Recently Appeared In:  Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown
Birth date:  She's 32.
Other Credits:  Stage:  Passing Strange (Off-Broadway, Broadway and in the Spike Lee film), Doris to Darlene (Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons), Macbeth (Classical Theatre of Harlem).  TV and Film: Passing Strange, Sex and the City amongst others.
Website:  http://www.deadreaziza.com/ (Be sure to check out her list of "25 Things" - VERY interesting!
Honors:  2008 Tony Award nomination - Best Supporting Actress in a Musical, Passing Strange, 2008 Theatre World Award Winner
