Sasha the Singer
Sasha Actress and Singer
Sasha made her entre in theatre as an actress in the Los Angeles production of production "Anna Lucasta". The Chicago production of “GodSpell” is where she earned her legitimacy as an actress and membership in Actor’s Equity. She later appeared with Desmond “Sanford and Sons” Wilson in "Come Blow Your Horn” followed by her first one-woman show “Madame Hortense” which, earned her a nomination for the Joseph Jefferson Citation.
She recently appeared in “The Animator” written and produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Robert Jones.
As a vocalist Sasha has performed throughout the United States and Canada and performed for the Kool Jazz festival pre-festival at Carnegie Hall.
Additionally, she performed with the legendary Lionel Hampton in New York and Canada.
However, it was her performance in “Sasha! Sing Dinah” that earned her major recognition.
Written and performed by Sasha, this was her first tribute to the great vocalist Dinah Washington. Sasha relates that "The show was conceived because of my love for Dinah Washington's music and my frustration that Dinah had never received the major recognition she deserved." Sasha is quick to add “My intention was to only write and produce the show, not to perform in it. When I finally found the right singer, her only interest was how much she would be paid. Upset, I took my script, changed the name of the show from “Dinah and her Music” and “Sasha! Sing Dinah” was born." With her five-member cast the show was an instant success and ran in Chicago for 18 months. It was later produced in New York Off-Broadway at the West Side Arts Theater titled “Dinah, Queen of the Blues” as a one woman show.
