Name: Victoria Medina
What is your current project? One Nation, One Mission, One Promise
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
The Steve and Marie Sgouros Theatre, under The Players Theatre Artist in Residence program. The Team at The Players Theatre are just amazing. Everyone is supportive and caring about the work that is being produced. The location is amazing, right in the heart of Greenwich Village, surrounded by the most beautiful and historic buildings and landmarks. One Nation, One Mission, One Promise brings the best of our history alive and the neighborhood around the theatre breathes life into our history and creates new memories everyday.
What’s next for you?
One Nation, One Mission, One Promise opens on July 8, 2017. We are excited to hear from the audience after the show during our talk back. The next step will be to re-stage the show based on our audience at The Steve and Marie Sgouros Theatre. In 2018 we look forward to growing into the main stage theatre, so stay tuned, because each performance will be its own unique experience.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Any advice for your peers?
Read Sam Mendes 25 Steps to be a director. Many of his suggestions I think apply to all positions in theater production.
Victoria Medina, Playwright, Director, Producer
Victoria has been invited to participate in The Players Theatre Artist In Residence Program. For over twenty years she has dedicated her life to her three passions: photography, writing and performing. This theatrical journey, One Nation, One Mission, One Promise, represents the climactic 3rd stage of this project which includes all three disciplines along with speaking engagements. She is so excited to see her trifecta of photos, writing and theater come to full fruition!
It began life as the photographic art exhibit, American Spirit, and was then developed into an Amazon best-selling book entitled One Nation, One Mission, One Promise, featuring exhibit images alongside her original poetry and prose plus quotes from famous and not-so famous Americans. Images from the American Spirit exhibit were also featured in the debut stage production of the award-winning show, Zuccotti Park – The Musical.
Victoria is also delighted to have joined the Song of Solomon: A New Musical producing team. She has also produced Latinos and the Business of Acting at the Public Theatre, and has been on the production team of several independent films in Los Angeles.
