Nazlah Black

International Theatre Artist


I am first and foremost a human. But I am also an artist, a citizen and a female of color. Every time I walk into an audition room or direct a play I remind myself that I am not only advancing my own career but paving the way for those younger than me.  I write, direct, act, and create for them. 

Upcoming Productions


2019 is guaranteed to be a year of growth and change for Nazlah!

After three of years of calling New York City their home, Nazlah has been accepted to the nationally acclaimed Pig Iron School and therefore will be moving to Philadelphia in the Fall. At this school, Nazlah will be given the tools and the courage to create diverse, revolutionary art that more accurately reflects her mission of giving a voice to the voiceless.

But don’t worry, you still have time to see Nazlah perform in NYC before they leave for school in the fall. Currently they are in rehearsals for Little Flame’s queer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In Late July you will get to see them juggling the two roles of Hermia and Snug. Tickets can be found at the link below:

As always, stay tuned for future productions and projects!
