Tina Fabrique Biography

When you get to know Tina Fabrique, it is easy to understand how her personal dedication, talent and determination have guided her and helped her to reach the goals that once seemed only childhood dreams.

From growing up in Harlem, or the responsibilities of young motherhood, to midtown recording studios and New York City Cabarets, Tina has built a career as an actress and singer respected by her peers and in demand by playwrights, producers and directors alike.

Equally at home in musicals on Broadway: ” Gospel at Colonus”, “Bring In The Noise Bring In The Funk”, “Ragtime”, and others…or straight dramatic roles such as: “Trouble In Mind”, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “Glass Menagerie”. She was honored to have received the Kevin KlienAward and Florida’s, Carbonell Award for her performance as Ella Fitzgerald in “ELLA”, a show which has taken Tina to countless regional theaters and which was cited by Variety as the top grossing Regional show of this decade. She was honored to have created this role, and thrilled at the critical reception to her performance.
Tina’s television experience is just as varied; from the drama of “BLUE BLOODS” and “NEW AMSTERDAM”, to singing the original theme for “READING RAINBOW”, and much in between. She is also pleased to have been chosen to sing the title song for the Award Winning film “Mad Hot Ballroom.”
