Andrea San Miguel BIO

At her core, Andrea is a practitioner of empathy, a lover of words, a student, and a storyteller. She is continually inspired by the power of language, the lens by which we contextualize the world, and the work that influences it. She believes great art holds a mirror up to nature and consistently finds truth within itself to inspire and connect through shared experience.

Andrea, a proud Mexican-American from Austin, Texas, earned her BFA in Acting from the University of Minnesota/Guthrie BFA Actor’s Training Program. In 2015 she moved to Chicago; found representation with the incomparable team at Paonessa Talent and has since performed at The Goodman Theatre, Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Writers Theatre, and Victory Gardens. Regionally she has been seen at The Guthrie Theatre, American Players Theatre, Indiana Repertory Theatre, and Cincinnati Playhouse to name a few.

Andrea’s super power is her ability to deconstruct text. By offering an inquisitive, investigatory perspective into the language, her quest is for complication, queerness, to find the richness of challenging deeply held assumptions, celebrate contradictions, and never stop asking “Why?”

Andrea’s personal mission is to amplify marginalized voices, to provide allyship to those whom history has attempted to erase or oppress, and to inspire her collaborators as much as the audiences she is interminably grateful for.

It takes a village. Andrea believes in the power of community and knows that her city, her community, her family and friends are at the heart of her work, her inspiration, and the source of her dedication.

Review: MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN at Indiana Repertory Theatre

Do you think you know the story of Frankenstein? Do you picture a green-skinned creature with bolts in his neck? The true story is less about the monster than it is about its creator and this adaptation looks closely at the writer behind the story. It's a tale of man's hubris and catastrophic guilt and how very human those things are.

BWW Review: HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF at Victory Gardens Theater

Liliana Padilla's HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF offers a brilliant examination of collegiate life, and, more specifically, the ways in which rape culture and the entirely real possibility of sexual assault affect university students. But what makes Padilla's play so powerful, fascinating, and entertaining is that their playwriting never becomes preachy or pointed. By capturing the parlance and cadence of the language that college students use with acute accuracy, Padilla allows the expertly fleshed out characters to reflect on these issues in a grounded and compelling manner.

BWW Review: ALIAS GRACE Haunts at Cincinnati Playhouse In The Park

I'll be the first to admit that when I read the show blurb for Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park's 'Alias Grace,' I was a little anxious and hesitant about seeing it. I knew the talent would be through the roof, and the production quality would be extraordinary, as always, but it was the subject matter that I feared. I am an absolute wimp when it comes to thrillers and murder mysteries. Yet, I spent the entire play on the edge of my seat, thoroughly enjoying myself and mourning the end when the lights came up.
