BROOKE MORIBER PLAYS REVOLUTION BAR & MUSIC HALL

Brooke Moriber



NEW YORK -- For native New Yorker Brooke Moriber, having a knack for stage performance came very early on. After garnering the role of Young Cosette in Broadway’s “Les Miserables” as her first audition at age 8, it was clear the young actress had an abundant amount of talent and a bright future in show biz. But “Les Mis” would be just the tip of the iceberg, as her flourishing talents would lead her to the stage yet again as a singer-songwriter at age 15. Flash forward some years later, with seven Broadway shows, roles opposite such stars as Lili Taylor and Kristen Johnston, and a burgeoning recording career--she’ll hit the stage with her band Wednesday, April 8th for a taping of Verizon Fios1’s “Rick’s Rising Stars” at Revolution Bar & Music Hall, located at 140 Merrick Rd, Amityville, NY 11701.



Growing up down the block from NY’s Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village--an area known for being an artists haven since the 1960s--its no wonder Moriber was drawn to the stage at such a young age. Celebrated for her “clarion voice” by the Associated Press and as “A ravishing star with a paint-peeling belt”, she’s had the opportunity to work with legendary Broadway director Harold Prince in Parade- a musical in which she originated the role of “lola Stover”.



Continuing the pattern, she soon went on to create original roles on Broadway as “Nadine” in The Wild Party and “Lily” in James Joyce’s The Dead, performed with Cyndi Lauper and Alan Cumming in The Threepenny Opera, played a young opera singer in Follies on Broadway, and even received praise off-Broadway for her murderous portrayal as “Mindy” in Wallace Shawn’s Aunt Dan and Lemon. Premiering Randy Newman's "Stupid Little Songs" would follow, where she would play Randy's first wife in The Education Of Randy Newman.
