Brooklyn-born Capathia Jenkins is a powerhouse entertainer who shines both on the Broadway stage and in concert halls. She made her grand entrance in The Civil War, originating the role of Harriet Jackson. Soon after, she wowed audiences with her soulful voice in the Off-Broadway revival of Godspell, particularly with her rendition of "Turn Back, O Man."
Jenkins' Broadway credits range from Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning Caroline, or Change to the dazzling The Look of Love. She brought down the house as the charismatic Medda in Newsies and left audiences wanting more as Frieda May in Martin Short's Fame Becomes Me.
