About Adina Verson
Originally from the suburbs of Chicago and Kansas City, Adina moved east after high school to study musical theatre at The Boston Conservatory. After receiving her BFA, moving to New York City, and having a brief love affair with holistic medicine, Adina decided to plant her roots at the Yale School of Drama’s acting MFA program.
While at Yale, Adina had the pleasure of working on such roles as Imogen in Cymbeline, Margaret in Henry IV, Feste in Twelfth Night, and Crabby Old Granny Stain in The Really Big Fat Show.
After graduating with her MFA and moving back to New York, Adina immediately hit the road, working in New York and around the country at the Vineyard Theatre, Primary Stages, the Guthrie Theatre, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre Company DC, Yale Repertory Theatre, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, and Barrington Stage Company. She also had the opportunity to collaborate on a number of new theatre pieces, most notably Machine Makes Man (co-created and performed with Michael McQuilken) which won Best International Performance at the Amsterdam Fringe and was subsequently invited to the National Arts Festival of South Africa and the Cape Town Fringe.
Adina has appeared in numerous national commercials, music videos, and can be seen on "Mozart in the Jungle", Errol Morris's "Wormwood", and Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Strain”.
This Spring, Adina will be making her Broadway debut in Paula Vogel and Rebecca Taichman’s new play Indecent at The Cort Theatre.
