Anna Deavere Smith

Appeared in 2014


Anna Deavere Smith, award winning actress/playwright, is most recognized for her roles in Nurse Jackie, The West Wing, The American President, Rachel Getting Married, Philadelphia, and others.  She has authored Letters to A Young Artist and Talk to Me: Listening Between the Lines, and has been hailed by Newsweek as “the most exciting individual in American theater.”  Deavere Smith uses solo performance as a public medium to explore issues of race, identity and community in America.  She has created over 15 one-person shows based on hundreds of interviews, most of which deal with social issues. Her most recent one-person show Let Me Down Easy, focused on health care in the US. Three of her plays have been broadcast on American Playhouse and Great Performances (PBS).
