Meet the Cast: Danica Carlson as Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun

Danica Carlson

Co-Founder of Back Alley Productions and internationally sold recording artist Danica Carlson has appeared in over 250 film, radio, stage and voice-over performances since the age of five. She has been nominated for five Spotlight on the Arts Awards, as well as two New Hampshire Theater Awards. Danica has also had the recent opportunity of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with comedy troop DARWiN’S WAiTiNG ROOM.

“As a producer, you try to find scripts that move you, inspire you, and push you to try something new. When Joi handed me this script, I instantly fell in love. As an artist myself, identifying with Elisa was far from difficult, but the challenge of her emotional journey was daunting. I honestly couldn’t have found her if it had not been for this incredible cast, director, and crew. Everything has come together better than I could have ever imagined, and I couldn’t be more proud of the journey we have all taken together. I look forward to the audience falling in love with this show and its characters as much as I have. I am endlessly grateful for this opportunity.”
