Rebbekah Vega-Romero – A Broadway Love Affair
A Broadway Love Affair: Join feisty ingenue Rebbekah Vega-Romero on a journey through the ever-evolving landscape of American Musical Theatre, exploring how the art form that she loves has defined romance in our culture and in her own life. You will hear a range of tunes, from Golden Age classics by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Bernstein, and Sondheim, up to modern composers like Menken, Ahrens, and Flaherty, and Guettel. The music will make you swoon, and the stories will make you think.
Rebbekah Vega-Romero is an NYC native, a proud member of Actor's Equity, and a triracial Latina bruja. A YoungArts award-winning writer, Rebbekah graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor’s in English Literature and Theatre Arts. Rebbekah has a wide-ranging career as an actress, from her "luminous" portrayal of Maria in “West Side Story” at the 5th Avenue Theatre, to her upcoming short film, “The Question,” which she also wrote and produced. Her poetry has been featured in The Quaranzine Zine, and in the forthcoming Sixfold. Rebbekah hopes her work will inspire other mixed-race girls to realize that “there’s a place for us.” Visit her virtually at www.RebbekahVegaRomero.com.
