Marisha Wallace Biography

Marisha - whose power-packed new single 'Fight Like A Woman' is out now - was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina. But the small town never held down her big city dreams. From glittering New York, her unbelievable talent has taken her around the world.

On Broadway, Marisha starred in shows including Disney's Aladdin, The Book of Mormon and Something Rotten and then here, in the UK, as Effie White in the stellar West End hit Dreamgirls before following this up as Becky in the unmissable Waitress.

Described by The New York Post as "a marvel", Marisha's spine-tingling rendition of 'And I Am Telling You' from Dreamgirls has quite simply to be seen and heard to be believed.

BWW Review: OKLAHOMA!, Young Vic Photo BWW Review: OKLAHOMA!, Young Vic
by Mert Dilek - May 6, 2022

Forget the butter-churner and the lasso. This Oklahoma! has no need of them. Following a Broadway run and a U.S. tour, Daniel Fish and Jordan Fein’s Tony-winning production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical comes to London’s Young Vic like a hipster cowboy riding into town. In their audacious interpretation, the heart and soul of this American classic offer themselves up in a new, disturbing guise. For what comes into view at the end of its three hours is a vision of American communality forged not only in camaraderie, but also in conflict and blood.
