BWW Feature: Spotlight On Shakina Nayfack - A Video Library

The star of NBC's "Connecting" has, long, been a trailblazer on the nightclub stages of New York.

BWW Feature: Spotlight On Shakina Nayfack - A Video Library The founding Artistic Director of New York City's Musical Theatre Factory, Shakina Nayfack is a writer, producer, director, singer, songwriter, and actress whose presence in the industry reaches into every corridor of show business. Her ONE WOMAN SHOW at the Broadway Comedy Club told the story of her real-life gender confirmation story, while her musical MANIFEST PUSSY played to sold-out audiences at Joe's Pub. Shakina made history by becoming the first transgender person to be cast as a series regular on a network show - NBC's "Connecting." Even with all her own projects, Shakina still makes time for her activism, charity work, and appearances in other peoples' cabaret shows... especially if her close friend Joe Iconis is behind the piano.
