THE ART OF MANAGING A CAREER IN THE THEATRE
with Actress/Singer/Producer N’KENGE
So you are a working actress. You are making a living doing what you love most. How do you carve out a thriving career performing in concert venues while working as an actress in the theatre? How do you evaluate and choose the opportunities that come your way? It takes a lot of savvy – and style, relentless marketing and promotion, hard work, and not to mention, a lot of grit and determination. Oh yes, and talent. Lots of talent. And all the while you are raising a family.
Meet N’Kenge. A powerhouse singer who began her lifelong love of performing at the age of three. At 17, she won the Lena Horne Singing Competition Scholarship, the ASCAP Leiber and Stoller Award and the Leontyne Price Vocal Competition. She has appeared in such disparate roles as Mary Wells in Broadway’s Motown, as a classical chanteuse in “Three Mo’ Divas,” and has appeared in over a 100 solo concerts throughout the United States. Adding producer to her resume, N’Kenge is spearheading the Off-Broadway musical “Dorothy Dandridge: Hollywood’s Sepia Goddess.”
