Dana Aber BIO

Dana Aber (she/her) is a performer, producer, collaborator, and creator. Dana’s 20-year career has spanned the magical, maternal, and manipulative facets of humanity (and otherwise), garnering her a Best Actress Award in 2018 in NYC. Theatrically, she’s played across the country and across the seas, and has been seen Off-Broadway and in NYC at The Dixon Place, NYFringe Festival, NYMF, Apollo Theatre, and FDCAC/Classical Theatre of Harlem. Through her Big Thunder Productions company, Dana has created and helmed 8 concert-cabarets, most notably the bi-coastal #YesAllWomen Raise Your Voice concert joining artists within the movement for gender equality. As a theatre writer, she pulls from personal experience to share her comedic Quarantined Waitress web series, and her 1-woman musical, Baggage at the Door, which travels her healing process from trauma-induced PTSD. Dana is currently crafting several new pieces to debut later this year: FINAL BLOW about besties, boundaries, and blame, and a solo-vehicle for her brother, Bway’s Drew Aber, about identity exploration via video games. She is a survivor, ally, and advocate, honored to use her voice to share for those who cannot.
