"...the luminous Stephanie Weeks, contains the anguish of the failed and aged general Adrastus..."
Anne Midgette, The New York Times
Stephanie Weeks was born and raised in the Bronx. She spent many summers in Costa Rica dancing salsa and eating salted mangoes, patacones and pancakes with her aunts and uncles.
After 8 years of playing the cello through elementary and high school, she auditioned for the musical "Bye Bye Birdie", and was cast as the giddy teenager "Nancy". She never picked up the cello again.
Stephanie has performed in numerous theaters regionally including Actors Theater of Louisville and Florida Studio Theater, Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons, Off-Off Broadway with Target Margin and Little Lord with whom she was nominated for an Innovative Theater Award for best ensemble. She starred in acclaimed director Melvin Van Peebles "Confessionsofa Ex-Doofus-ItchyFooted-Mutha," official selection of the Tribeca Film Festival 2008. She received a certificate of training from the London Academy of Music and Drama and her MFA from the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
