The global pandemic has had devastating effects on the world for over a year and a half. As the dust on the pandemic gradually settles, live theater is making a grand comeback, and it’s back and better than ever. There has been a massive clamor for people to get back to seeing live theater and experiencing the hope that art can bring to the lives of many. Professional Mexican actress, singer, and writer Paulina De La Parra aims to do just that, keeping the hope alive through her artistic and creative performances in the world of theater.
Paulina De La Parra was recently cast in a seven-month contract with the two-time Tony Award-winning company Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park (CPIP). The playhouse has continuously offered audiences the finest in professional theater for over 60 years now. It is nationally known for its excellence and commitment to new works and as an artistic home for America’s best actors, directors, and designers.
Paulina De La Parra will be sharing the stage with stars like Bruce Cromer and Greg Procaccino, among many other talented and successful cast members in their 30-year running show of “A Christmas Carol,” where she’ll be portraying “Mary” and “Mrs. Dilber.” The show will be running until December 30th at the reputable and nationally acclaimed “Marx Theatre” that has Broadway capacity.
There are many projects in the pipeline for the esteemed theater actress. Soon after, Paulina will be touring with CPIP with the show “Tortoise and the Hare,” where she will play the lead role as the Hare. Paulina will also appear as Flotsam in “Little Mermaid” and will also play a part in “Off The Grid.”
Paulina De La Parra is also set to star in “TERREMOTO,” an incredible modern-day and Latino adaptation of Shakespear’s “The Tempest.” Paulina will play the lead role of “Marinda,” where she will put her theater acting skills on full display. The play is written by Carl J. Danielsen and is poised to captivate and inspire many audiences from different walks of life.
The renowned theater actress is also part of the many successful shows done by the theater company Something from Abroad, which will produce shows in their residency at the number one indie theater in New York City, The Kraine Theatre.
Paulina De La Parra’s body of work aims to give a voice to the underrepresented communities of the world. As a member of the Latin community, her performances aim to inspire inclusivity and diversity within the industry and bring social awareness to important subjects. She firmly believes that art is a vehicle for spreading a positive message and is not solely for entertainment alone. She hopes that her performances will bring healing and change to the world, and she has been passionately working at honing her craft to make waves in the industry to create a ripple of change.
Paulina De La Parra’s open project with the LAByrinth Theatre company entitled “Shame Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” tackles the issues of racism and xenophobia and sees the talented actress speak up about it. Other notable works that she is attached to include the show “Wounded,” a play by Sophie Macintosh that discusses femicides from the victim’s perspective.
The renowned theater actress is also part of Tony Award-winning Tonya Pinkin’s show “Truth and Reconciliation of Womyn / Women Working it Out,” which navigates a collective of various ten-minute plays for and about women healing from how they have been oppressed for centuries.
Overall, Paulina De La Parra is using the power of her art form to elicit positive change in the world around us. She is giving hope to the world where it has seemingly died out. As she continues to make art and perform, she hopes that one day her work will truly resonate with the world, allowing her to leave a lasting legacy that will echo into the hearts of many.To know more about Paulina De La Parra, make sure to visit her official website.
