Broadway Ladies: Ms. Broadway June 2011: Nikki M. James

Ms. Broadway June 2011
Nikki M. James

 
WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: I suppose the fact that she just won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical would be enough.  But let's face it, almost all of that "heart" and "backbone" and "emotional surprise" that everyone talks about with The Book of Mormon comes from Ms. James' character, Nabalungi.  And she didn't just come out of nowhere.  She's paid her dues on Broadway in All Shook Up and the flop, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.  She has also worked extensively, and with wide variety, regionally, working with such heavy-hitters as Christopher Plummer, and in works ranging from The Wiz to Romeo and Juliet.  But, for now at least, she's a bonafide Broadway star known for taking The Book of Mormon's sole acting Tony, and for giving one of the evening's most genuine, heartfelt speeches.  Just like she does 8 times a week at the Eugene O'Neill theatre.

 
OTHER INFORMATION:
  • Birthdate: June 3, 1981 (She just turned 29 again!)
  • What you might have seen her in: Broadway: The Book of Mormon, All Shook Up, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; Off-Broadway: The House of Bernarda Alba; Regionally: The Wiz (La Jolla), Romeo and Juliet, Caesar and Cleopatra (Stratford Shakespeare Festival); TV and Film: Pizza, Third Watch, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, 30 Rock.
