Photo Coverage: Luba Mason at the Laurie Beechman Theatre
A native New Yorker and first generation American, Luba Mason spent her early youth devoted to training in classical voice, piano and dance. The training paid off with her early acceptance to the Circle in the Square Theatre School and NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Straight out of school, Luba was plucked by Tommy Tune to sing and dance on Broadway in the Tony Award winning, The Will Rogers Follies. She went on to impress Trevor Nunn, who cast her in the American premiere of Sunset Boulevard. But it was director/impressario Des McAnuff who placed Luba front and center in the role of sex bomb Hedy LaRue next to Matthew Broderick's J. Pierpnt Finch in the celebrated Broadway revival of in How to Succeed... A role in Paul Simon's The Capeman preceded Luba's return to Center Stage as she starred in the Broadway production of Jekyll & Hyde, and then as Velma Kelly opposite Brooke Shields' Roxy Hart in the smash Broadway revival of Chicago. Her television credits include Law and Order, NYPD Blue and New York Undercover, and most recently opposite Jeff Goldblum in the psychic detective series, Raines. Her nighclub appearances include SRO engagements at clubs such as LA's famed Catalina Bar & Grill, Vibrato and the Cinegrill, New York's Opia and The Metropolitan Room, Chicago's Davenports and San Francisco's The Exit Theatre.
