Fina Strazza

fina-strazza-now FINA STRAZZA (Little Girl) made her Broadway debut at eight years old as the youngest actress to perform the title role in Matilda the Musical. She first appeared Off-Broadway at St Clements Theater (A Loss of Roses, dir. Dan Wackerman). Workshop credits include Anastasia (dir. Darko Tresnjak); Alice Bliss (dir. Mark Brokaw, New Horizons); Snow Child (dir. Molly Sims, Arena Stage); and Summer and Smoke (dir. Jack Cummings III, Classic Theater Company). With numerous appearances on both big and small screens, Fina was chosen by director Mariah Carey to star in the Hallmark Channel’s original film A Christmas Melody, for which the legendary singer wrote, produced, and recorded with Fina a new version of her number one single, “Oh, Santa!” Fina is delighted to be joining Atlantic amid such fine company and extends her gratitude for all artistic opportunities to John Mara Jr, Ellen and Rachel at Paradigm, and her family, who inspire her routinely.

Review Quotes

The Culture Trip

“and, in an especially chilling scene, the schoolgirl (the poised Fina Strazza) who takes the place of Rachel’s psychiatrist.”

Curtain Up

“Also appearing is a very pretty pre-teen girl (Finna Strazza) whose presence adds another confounding layer to Rachel’s mental state”

Front Row Center

And leave it to the Atlantic to cast Fina Strazza in the part; she nails it. At age 8, Miss Strazza was the youngest girl to play the title role in Matilda on Broadway. Now, in an oddly similar costume, she manifests an adult inner-life that signals to the audience, if it wasn’t apparent already, that the rules of nature in Rachel’s world are subject to change without notice.”

Light and Sound of America

“As the little girl, Fina Strazza holds her own against Hall, no small achievement.”

New York Times

“Then there’s that eerily poised girl (Fina Strazza), who might have stepped out of Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” and mysteriously channels Rachel’s ineffectual therapist, Stephen (Greg Keller).”

T2C Online

“and a young girl in a private school outfit, played solidly by Fina Strazza (Broadway’s Matilde the Musical) that briefly pops up and unsettles the already unhinged Rachel.”

Theater Mania

“…the confident young Fina Strazza…”
