Tony Award Winner Makes Her SF Debut

In a real-life Broadway Cinderella story, Patina Miller was plucked from the chorus of the Pasadena premiere of Sister Act and made her West End and Broadway debuts playing Deloris Van Cartier. She went on to star as the Leading Player in the Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz’s famous 1972 musical, Pippin. Directed by Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus, and also starring Matthew James Thomas, Andrea Martin and Terrance Mann, Pippin received the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical at the 67th Annual Tony Awards. Patina successfully put a contemporary twist on a role originated by award-winning actor Ben Vereen and mastered the Fosse movements that the show relies so heavily on. Patina earned a Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical and an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical as well as Drama League, Fred and Adele Astaire Award and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award nominations for her performance.

Patina performed her first solo concert at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts during its 2013-2014 theatrical season. She then made her New York City debut in February 2014 as part of Lincoln Center Theater’s “American Songbook” series, which subsequently aired on PBS.

Patina Miller can currently be seen as press coordinator Daisy Grant in the second season of CBS’ hit drama series, “Madam Secretary,” starring Tea Leoni, Bebe Neuwirth and Tim Daly. Written by Barbara Hall and directed by Dave Semel, the series premiered in September 2014 and returned to CBS for its sophomore season in October 2015.
