Eva Noblezada

Hadestown, Yellow Rose

Eva Noblezada was Tony-nominated for her current role on Broadway in Hadestown after her critically acclaimed run in the show last fall at the National Theatre in London. She stars as the lead in Diane Paragas’s film, Yellow Rose, playing in theaters October 9, 2020. In 2017, she was nominated for a Tony for starring in the title role of Miss Saigon. Variety called her Broadway debut “entrancing.” She previously starred in the West End revivals of Miss Saigon and Les Miserables. She also won a Grammy for the Hadestown Original Broadway Cast Recording.

Survivors' Agenda is a collective of organizations that believes that survivors should be the ones shaping the national conversation on sexual violence. From sexual harassment in the workplace to safety in schools and communities, the Survivors’ Agenda is a community-driven guide toward the survivor justice that they all deserve. It is about what they are calling for, and what they will no longer stay silent about.
