Bio

Liza Vann was introduced to New York theatre audiences when she premiered Off-Broadway in VOX HUMANA #3: A LOVE SONG at La Mama. Most recently praised for her performance as Jean Morelli in Charles Messina’s hilarious new play A ROOM OF MY OWN with Mario Cantone and Ralph Macchio, her favorite New York credits include the “ferocious” Bree Benson in Tom Dulack’s unsettling thriller THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS, Jack Canfora’s “queen of the bon mots” Diane Greer in POETIC LICENSE, her “feisty” performance in the "exuberant" musical revue, GOOD OL’ GIRLS, and the “dynamic” Marietta Corsini in Richard Vetere's MACHIAVELLI. A recipient of the Clarence Ross Fellowship from the American Theatre Wing, she has performed extensively in regional theater, as well as abroad, most recently as the “beautiful and talented” Vivacity Wilkes in James McLure’s “exquisite” play, IAGO, for which she received the award for Best Actress in a Play from BroadwayWorld. Also a producer of independent feature film, THE RADICALS, and the poignant love story, SONG OF LEAVES.

THE TOP OF THE BOTTOM HALF: AN EVENING WITH THE KEEPER OF ALL KNOWLEDGE, is her 70-minute one-woman show which won the Silver Award in Women’s Issues in April 2000 at Worldfest-Houston. As a live performance, THE TOP OF THE BOTTOM HALF has crisscrossed the U.S. and Canada, making stops at theaters, universities and various organizations. Liza’s performances often benefit women’s health organizations, and she continues to accept limited engagements nationwide.

Liza was also featured in the film, THE RADICALS. Shot entirely on location in France, Switzerland, and Germany, it was accorded a special honorary screening at the International Festival of the Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria, one of only three American features so honored (the other two being SCHINDLER’S LIST and GETTYSBURG). In her latest film, A CIRCLE ON THE CROSS, she plays opposite Terrence Mann in the quiet story of a Vietnam POW who finds his way home after twenty years.

Liza holds a B.A. in Dramatic Arts from Queens University of Charlotte, NC, and currently resides in Manhattan.
