  3. TR In Concert: Stephanie J. Block


STEPHANIE J. BLOCK was most recently seen on Broadway starring as The Baker’s Wife in the 2022/2023 critically acclaimed production of Into the Woods. 

 

Block has established herself as one of the most relevant and versatile voices in contemporary musical theatre. She won the 2019 Tony Award® for Best Leading Actress in a Musical, as well as winning The Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Award for her STAR turn in The Cher Show. 

She was also recognized for her role of Trina in Lincoln Center Theatre’s 2016 revival of Falsettos garnering her the Tony Award®, Drama Desk and Outer Critics nominations for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. In 2013, she was recognized with both the Drama Desk and Tony Award® nomination(s) for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Alice Nutting/ Edwin Drood in The Roundabout Theater’s production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. These three productions marked three nominations in a six year span, a feat very few Broadway actors have attained. Other Broadway credits include Reno Sweeney in the 2011 Tony Award®-winning revival of Anything Goes, 9 to 5: The Musical playing the role of Judy Bernly for which she earned a Drama Desk nomination for Best Actress in a Musical.

 

She created the roles of Grace O’Malley in The Pirate Queen and Liza Minnelli In The Boy From Oz (opposite Hugh Jackman). Block is also well known for her portrayal as Elphaba in the Broadway company of Wicked as well as originating the role in the first national tour for which she won numerous awards including the prestigious Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical.

Some of her Off-Broadway and regional theatrical credits include Norma Desmond in SUNSET BLVD at The Kennedy Center,

Brigadoon (Encores! City Center), Little Miss Sunshine (Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical), By The Way, Meet Vera Stark Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play), They’re Playing Our Song (starring opposite Jason Alexander), and the World Premiere of Wicked.

Stephanie’s solo album, This Place I Know has been received with great praise, lauded by critics as “One of the best debut recordings to come out of the Broadway community in quite some time…6 out of 5 stars”. An array of award-winning songwriters assembled to help interpret their music on Stephanie’s album. Composers such as Stephen Schwartz, Marvin Hamlisch and the legendary Dolly Parton join forces with Ms. Block to create a thrilling musical experience. Stephanie’s voice can be heard on multiple cast recordings, including The Cher Show, Brigadoon, Falsettos, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 9 to 5: The Musical (Grammy Nomination), Wicked’s 5th Anniversary Album, The Pirate Queen, and The Boy From Oz. 

 

Television credits include: Bluff City Law (NBC), Rise (NBC), Madame Secretary (CBS), Orange Is the New Black (Netflix), Homeland (Showtime), It Could Be Worse (HULU).

Theatre Raleigh Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

Theatre Raleigh is at 6638 Old Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, NC.

Theatre Raleigh is professional, non-profit theatre company based in Raleigh, North Carolina. It grew out of the original “Hot Summer Nights at the Kennedy” Series, begun in 2005 by K.D. Kennedy Jr. and his son, Michael Kennedy. The series operated out of the K.D. and Sara Lynn Kennedy Theatre, a 133-seat black box space around the back of the Duke Energy Center performing arts complex. In 2009, Lauren Kennedy Brady took over the series from her father and brother, building it into a year-round professional company that she renamed Theatre Raleigh. The organization officially incorporated as a nonprofit in 2013. Under Kennedy-Brady’s leadership, Theatre Raleigh has grown into one of the top theatre destinations in the Triangle, employing both local professionals and Broadway veterans. The company still continues its beloved Summer Series, but has expanded its programming to include a Family Series, a new works initiative, various concert events, and a number of educational components.
