Dana Aber (Diana) is absolutely thrilled to be rejoining The Bet as Diana! Dana has performed all around the globe—a true American gypsy— but keeps her heart in NYC. She has been seen in Off-Broadway and at the NYFringe Festival, NYMF New York Musical Theatre Festival, Apollo Theatre with George Faison’s If This Hat Could Talk nat’l tour, FDCAC/Classical Theatre of Harlem, University Club, the Studio @ Theatre Row, Workshop Theatre, & the Laurie Beechman in Times Square. Dana has worked regionally for Actors Theatre of Louisville & the Cleveland Play House, Virginia Stage, Walnut Street Theatre, Arden Theatre, Barrington Stage, Mercury Theatre Company, and Virginia Musical Theatre. Dana is a strong advocate for the development of new musicals, and has been involved with countless presentations at New Dramatists, Below 54, NYMF, NYU’s Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, & Dramatists Guild. She helms Big Thunder Productions, which created & produced a bi-coastal gender parity concert that connected her to the viral gender inequality spoof-video, #MakeItFair, singing alongside Rita Wilson. Up next: readings for new musicals Medusa and continuing development of her own solo-show! See more on YouTube or visit http://www.DanaAber.com.
