Williamsburg! The Musical is a collaboration by four friends who knew it was just too good a topic NOT to put on stage. Mix in an incredibly talented director/choreographer, and you've got a fab-tastic creative team. Here's a little bit about us:



NICOLA BARBER (Co-Creator, Web/Graphic Designer, and Amina Snatch) New York stage credits include Arts Nouveaux at Wings Theater, Work (director Jim Simpson) and JABU (director Liz Swados) at the Flea Theater, Aristophanes’ Peace at Abingdon Theater, and Pyrates! The Courtship Chronicles at Theatre for the New City.  Recent regional roles include Phebe in As You Like It and Fabian in Twelfth Night with Actors Shakespeare Company.  Nicola performed as a dance-skater with Jessica Simpson at her CD release party, and she can be seen alongside Scarlett Johnansson in The Nanny Diaries (Miramax), opening nationwide in September.
