Positive energy radiated the room as the stunning award winning actress entered the set.
This multi-talented, artistic lady is a talented stage actress having won the prestigious Dora Mayer Moore award ( 2009). Her portrayal in Miss Julie: Freedom summer (Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Featured Role in a Play or Musical ) was the award winning role.
In 2009 Raven starred in “Intimate Apparel” a love story set in New York in 1905, amid the ragtime. Last year she played the lead role of Esther, an ambitious and independent African-American woman. Esther has aspirations in conflict with turn of the century society. A gifted seamstress who has gained financial independence by sewing elegant undergarments for socialites and prostitutes. She dreams of opening her own boutique. When George, a charming Caribbean islander employed in the construction of the Panama Canal, writes to her, a romance begins that promises to help her realize her dreams.
Raven Dauda’s superb performance is quite simply the highlight of the evening…wonderfully nuanced…she breathes life into the awkward, slightly prim and dowdy 35-year old woman rushing toward love.”
