Rora Brodwin is a NYC-based actor (NY/LA local hire), originally hailing from San Francisco. Before starting the NYU MFA acting program, Rora performed as the lead of The Fez at The Flea Theater and premiered their one-person show at Dixon Place, Bunny, Godmother of Title IX. Some of their other NYC acting credits include: A Modest Proposal (Cherry Lane Theater), Gather 'Round (Dixon Place), Ros/Guil are Dead (The Brick) and So Sad, So Sexy (Rising Sun Lab).
A Yale graduate, Rora received the Yale Trumbull College Fine Arts Award for their original one-person show: Bunny, Godmother of Title IX. An incredible true story, Dr. Bernice “Bunny” Sandler filed the lawsuit that turned into Title IX and made sex discrimination illegal in higher education. Bunny found power where there was none, institutionalized it, and left it behind. Rora researched, wrote, performed, and produced the show.
Rora's screenplay adaptation of Bunny, Godmother of Title IX was a finalist for the Fusion Film Festival Graduate Screenplay Award. And Rora's original one act Pulses, Places, and Things premiered at NYU Graduate Acting's Freeplay Festival.
Rora is an avid pole dancer, a Star Trek geek, was on the Yale Pistol Team, and will eat a whole jar of olives before you can blink.
