When Hadestown opened on Broadway, Rolling Stone raved “Eva Noblezada is a fetching, potent Eurydice,” with The Wall Street Journal adding that she “gives a beautifully sincere, handsomely sung performance that you will find impossible to resist.” According to Elle Magazine, she “embodies a Charybdisian magnetism on stage, so alluring it feels dangerous.” New York Stage Review stated she “gives Eurydice an earnest nature and clear, bright vocals,” with Broadway News saying “Noblezada brings the same soulful voice to Eurydice that lifted the recent revival of Miss Saigon.”

“Girl No More,” Eva’s debut show at The Green Room 42 – which premiered when Eva was starring in Miss Saigon – was extended multiple times and went on to become one of the longest-running shows in the venue’s history.

Eva Noblezada starred on Broadway in the title role of Cameron Mackintosh’s epic revival of the musical Miss Saigon last season. She received a Tony Award nomination at the age of 21 for this role in her Broadway debut. She previously starred in the long-running London revival of the show, for which she received the WhatsOnStage Award for “Best Actress in a Musical.” She also played Eponine in the West End revival of the legendary musical Les Miserables. Eva was a high school student in Charlotte, NC, when she was discovered by casting director Tara Rubin at the 2013 Jimmy Awards in New York City. Rubin introduced her to Mackintosh and director Laurence Connor, who chose her to star in their long-awaited hit 2014 West End revival of Miss Saigon.

Eva Noblezada performs at The Green Room 42 (570 Tenth Avenue at 42nd Street, on the 4th Floor of Yotel) on Sunday nights: September 15 at 9:30 PM, October 13 at 7:00 PM, and October 27 at 9:30 PM.
