DAY 61: Actress Daphne Rubin Vega
TRIPLE-THREAT! actress, singer, dancer.
Talk about someone who can turn the world on with her smile... this TWO-time TONY Award nominee, has torn the theater world up for years, creating iconic characters: Mimi in RENT and Conchita in ANNA AND THE TROPICS... also in reviving iconic characters: Magenta in ROCKY HORROR and Fantine in Les Miz... and she's gone from stage (LAByrinth Theater Company's production) to film (Philip Seymour Hoffman's production) of JACK GOES BOATING... and that's all without even mentioning her Billboard Chart topping ("YO NO SE") singing career, which she is integrating with her theater career and has created an incredible piece, F.U.Q.s: FREQUENTLY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, a semi autobiographical rock and roll odyssey, playing at The Cutting Room on March 13 (back by popular demand!)... all this to say, Daphne LIGHTS OUR CANDLE on all the days, even our birthday...hope you're around for 90 more yourself, DRV!
