More on Andréa:

Andréa Burns received an Outer Critics Circle Award Nomination for her portrayal of “Gloria Fajardo” in Broadway’s On Your Feet! She is a winner of a Drama Desk Award for her creation of the role of “Daniela,” the saucy hairdresser in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning musical In The Heights.
