Natascia Diaz BIO

With striking versatility in roles from ‘Anita’ in West Side Story to ‘Fosca’ in Passion, in plays by John Patrick Shanley to Shakespeare, Natascia has been featured on stages across the country and abroad. After performing the role of Anita in New York City Ballet’s ‘West Side Story Suites’, her breakout performance in the subsequent National Tour garnered critical acclaim across the country and internationally, as well as Chicago’s Joseph Jefferson Award and St. Louis’s Kevin Klein Award. Her Broadway credits and cast albums include Seussical (‘Bird Girl’) and the revival of The Man of La Mancha (‘Antonia’) in which she covered the role of ‘Aldonza,’ performing opposite Brian Stokes Mitchell. Off-Broadway shows include ‘Susan’ in tick, tick…BOOM!, Sondheim’s Saturday Night (Second Stage), ‘Esmeralda Agron’ in The Capeman (Public Theater, directed Diane Paulus), and the acclaimed revival of Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris (Zipper Theatre). Her recent New York credits include ‘Rafaela’ in Grand Hotel (Encores!, directed by Josh Rhodes), and in January 2023 she made her Carnegie Hall debut in concert with New Kid Joey McIntyre.



Natascia has also performed extensively in Washington DC where she was named “one of the top 10 biggest stars in Washington DC theatre” (The Washingtonian). Regional highlights include ‘Petra’ in A Little Night Music (Kennedy Center), the titular role in Kiss Of The Spider Woman (Signature Theatre), originating the role of ‘Betty #3’ in Jen Silverman’s Collective Rage (Woolly Mammoth), Jacques Brel… (Helen Hayes Award), ‘Jenny’ in The Threepenny Opera (Helen Hayes nomination), ‘Mrs. Gibbs’ in Our Town (Shakespeare Theatre), ‘Mariana’ in Measure For Measure (Shakespeare Theatre), ‘Monica P. Miller’ in Rooms (Helen Hayes Award), ‘Sally’ in Follies (San Francisco Playhouse, Bay Area Critics nomination), ‘Velma’ in Chicago (the Muny, St. Louis Critics Award nomination), and ‘Gloria Fajardo’ in On Your Feet (the Muny, St. Louis Critics Award). Most notably, she took home her third Helen Hayes Award for her “obsessively watchable and gorgeously sung” (Washington Post) performance as ‘Fosca’ in Signature Theatre’s production of Sondheim’s Passion. Film and television credits include “Every Little Step”, “Oz,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “The Jury,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Damages,” and recurring on “FBI” (CBS) as ‘Detective Cantrell.’ Natascia is represented by DGRW. www.natasciadiaz.com.
