STAGE TUBE: On This Day 11/18- Daphne Rubin-Vega
Welcome to BWW's New Daily ON THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!
Happy Birthday Daphne Rubin-Vega! She is perhaps best known for the roles she originated, including Mimi (RENT) and Conchita (Anna in the Tropics), both Pulitzer Prize winning Broadway shows for which she was nominated for the Tony award. She also originated the role of Rahmi (Gum), Sofia (Nilo Cruz' Two Sisters and a Piano), Canary Mary (Suzan-Lori Parks' Fucking A, Lucille Lortel nomination) and Lucy (Jack Goes Boating) at The Public Theater, as well as starred in the Broadway revivals of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Magenta) and Les Mis, ("Fantine") and most recently, The New Group's Blood From a Stone ("Yvette") opposite Ethan Hawke."
In celebration of this day, we bring you 'I Dreamed a Dream' from Les Miserables. Click below to check it out!
