Hi, Thanks for stopping by!

I’m an actor and lyricist/librettist based in New York City.  You may have seen me on Law & Order, recurring as a police officer, or a number of TV shows and films.  

Apart from the numerous commercials and print ads, onstage I play the barrier-breaking Leading Ladies.   Sometimes these are women I've written myself and other times, they're the classic roles, in which I’m integrating southern radio stations (Felicia in Memphis ) advocating for my husband’s right to justice (Sarah in Ragtime) or fearlessly escaping the cage of my abusive home (Johanna u/s in Sweeney Todd).

I’m actively creating change on the stage and developing new projects as a lyricist in the Advanced BMI- Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop.  I've written commissioned work for New York City Children's Theatre,  Prospect Theatre's Musical Theather Lab, Astoria Performing Art Center, and Girlhood the Musical.  And I produce a concert series of my own work - The New Black Leading Lady- featuring songs from musical comedies I'm working on.  Keep an eye out for this baby, she sells out fast!!! 

And I’m moving the inclusion conversation forward as the co-Founder of BOLD, and on the AEA committee for Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity.

Take a look around and be sure to follow me on instagram @tiadeshazor for updates.
