Eva Noblezada (performing March 7) stars in the title role for director Diane Paragas in the recently released award-winning Sony Pictures film, Yellow Rose. She was nominated for a Tony Award for starring on Broadway in Hadestown. It was her second Tony nomination in two Broadway roles, following her earlier nod in the title role in Miss Saigon in 2017. She was previously a lead in Hadestown at the National Theatre in London after starring in the West End revivals of Miss Saigon and Les Miserables. Noblezada was a high school student in Charlotte, NC, when she was discovered by casting director Tara Rubin at the 2013 Jimmy Awards in NYC.
Emily Skinner (performing March 14) starred most recently on Broadway in The Cher Show in 2019. In 2017 she had the honor of being directed by Hal Prince in his last show Prince of Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club (Outer Critics Circle nomination) and also appeared that season Off-Broadway in Transport Group’s critically acclaimed Picnic (Drama Desk nomination). Emily starred as The Witch in Into The Woods at Houston’s Theatre Under The Stars and as Phyllis in Follies at The Repertory Theatre of St Louis, workshopped the new musical SCKBSTD by Grammy winning singer/songwriter Bruce Hornsby and created the role of Monique McCandless in Stephen King & John Mellencamp’s musical The Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County at the Alliance Theatre. Dame Julie Andrews selected Emily to star in the musical based on her children’s book The Great American Mousical, which premiered at Goodspeed. She starred previously on Broadway in the musical Billy Elliot (Broadway World Award) and was nominated for a Tony Award (along with Alice Ripley) and received a Drama League Award for her performance as Daisy Hilton in the brilliant but short-lived Side Show. Her other original Broadway credits include Jekyll & Hyde, James Joyce’s The Dead, The Full Monty, Dinner At Eight, A Christmas Carol, as well as The Actors Fund productions of The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, and Dreamgirls. She has performed at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops, and in the New York debut of Richard Thomas’ infamous Jerry Springer The Opera. As a soloist, she guested with the Pittsburgh Symphony, Virginia Symphony, Dallas Symphony, and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. Emily has also headlined New York engagements at Merkin Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Town Hall, Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre, Birdland, 54 Below, Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Series, Feinstein’s at the Regency, as well as her solo concert act Broadway Her Way at venues around the country.
