Becca Adams Weinberg
Theatre ~ TV/Film ~ Voiceover
Hey, I'm Becca!
I'm a Pacific Northwest native, now an actor based in NYC. I've always had a huge imagination that led me to pursue a life filled with storytelling. That eventually led me to the world of musical theatre at the age of eight! I graduated from Molloy College/ CAP21's musical theatre BFA program, and have since been dipping my toes into the TV/film world, and voiceover work. I have a huge love for new works, collaborations and innovative projects of any kind and I love hearing and telling stories about the LGBTQ+ experience. Along with singing and acting, you can find me keeping busy with DIY projects, learning new dialects, writing, making up recipes, playing ukulele and knitting scarves for dogs.
Here's What's Happening...
~The Narcissists of New York City~
I spent the whole summer of 2022 filming twelve episodes of an upcoming sitcom as a series regular. The story follows a narcissistic Bengali American who moves in with three other narcissists in NYC. I play "Gaia," a pansexual, overly excited, Wannabe-Mother-Teresa.
As a lover of new works, I was very excited to originate the role of "Mary Crawley," an hopeful young immigrant struggling with tuberculosis, in a workshop of Liberty, a new musical by Regan Hicks in June 2022. The show takes place on the S.S. Nevada, a ship headed to America with Irish and Italian Immigrants looking for a better life.
~Catching Fireflies at Feinsteins's/ 54 Below~
After making my Feinstein's/54 Below debut this March in A Symphony for Portland in concert, I was lucky enough to perform there again, just two months later, in a brand new workshop of Catching Fireflies: A New Queer Musical, by Bella Faye. I played "Willow," a writer, traveler and poet who is questioning her sexuality.
Art Grid: Enchanting Library Shoot
I had the magical opportunity to shoot stock footage for Art Grid, in a beautiful enchanting house filled with books in Upper Manhattan.
The Menagerie Cycle
Based on the classic indie video game by Werpol, Directed by Tylor Shore and Rosie Garcia, Adapted by Rosie Garcia.
In November 2021, Arachne Theatre presented a workshop of a new dystopian play in two parts, titled The Menagerie Cycle, performed at the Nubox Theatre in Manhattan. I played "Rebecca," an empathetic, lower class young woman, who struggles to see what she deserves in life.
A Symphony for Portland (Feinstein's 54/Below and more!)
An original musical composed and written by Christina Hemphill, with themes of homelessness prevention, faith, family and LGBTQ+ intolerance.
After a 2017 staged reading, and then spending my time in quarantine (Summer 2020) wearing many "hats"(actor, casting associate, marketing, assistant to the producer) on a virtual premiere of Christina Hemphill's new musical, A Symphony for Portland, we finally got to perform the show in person! In March 2022, I made my Feinstein's/54 Below Debut in A Symphony for Portland, Songs in Concert. During the process of this musical, I have played three different roles: Starr, a sheltered teen who runs away from home, Sarah, a young queer homeless woman, and an ensemble member.
