We are proud Adriana has gained the recognition she so thoroughly deserves for her astonishing performance as Maria. Through every step of bringing West Side Story to our stage last Christmas, Adriana electrified us all with her passion, intelligence and truly exceptional talents. Adriana’s Maria was a true revelation and her Puerto Rican heritage helped shape the entire production. “Though times are extremely challenging for all of us in theatre right now, it is important we celebrate the talents of all those who made recent debuts in theatre, who represent the future and will ensure it will be a bright one.”
