Joey flies solo this week as they chat with the incomparable Daphne Rubin-Vega about unlocking creativity during the pandemic, finding one’s community, and her upcoming film, ALLSWELL, co-written and co-produced with Elizabeth Rodriguez and Liza Colón-Zayas.
Daphne recently wrapped the film ALLSWELL and can be seen in the Netflix release, TICK TICK BOOM, directed by Lin Manuel Miranda, as well as the Warner Bros feature IN THE HEIGHTS, directed by Jon Chu, playing ‘Daniela.’ She shot the Netflix series SOCIAL DISTANCE, produced by Jenji Kohan and Tara Hermann, and SAME STORM, the newest Peter Hedges film, during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. A staple of the New York theater community, Daphne earned a Tony nomination for her portrayal of ‘Mimi’ in the original cast of RENT, and another for ANNA IN THE TROPICS. Daphne was ‘Luisa Lopez’ on KATY KEENE, the CW spinoff of RIVERDALE and on the Netflix series, TALES OF THE CITY.
She starred in the musical, MISS YOU LIKE HELL at The Public Theater, and in the one-woman show EMPANADA LOCA, which was written for her. She helped adapt the play into the scripted podcast, THE HORROR OF DOLORES ROACH, which is currently in production for Amazon/Blumhouse TV.
