Everyone’s a Critic
Jasmine Brooks received her first ever nomination: Best Actress in a Play - Small Professional Theatre - The Gulf - Kendra (2019) via BroadwayWorld Washington DC Award
"Marveled again last night @alcefaly's The Gulf. And that cast. Exquisite performances. The play seemed even stronger than when it premiered at Sig."
DC Metro Theater Arts
"Jasmine Brooks offers a high-energy, passionate performance as someone who does not want to be pushed too far, who does not want her life upended by her partner's plans for more education, for leaving the small town life."
"Peter's Alley presents an evocative and thought-provoking production of The Gulf - one that should put Jasmine Brooks and Anna Fagan on everyone's year-end 'to watch' list in 2019."
THE WASHINGTON POST
"The Production [#solestories] benefits greatly from the terrific Brooks, who infuses even prosaic moments -- chitchat with Lia over potato chips, for instance -- with interesting inflections and intense personality. (The other performers deliver their lines in sturdy fashion but lack Brooks's arresting vitality."

Bringing Art to my Community
Over the span of the next few months, I am planning on creating original art in the form of stories and plays that I hope to not
only perform, but hire local artists to perform and create as well. If you know any local artists in the DMV area, please message me at the bottom of the page! I'm also looking forward to using this website as a medium for other artists to promote their work. Please send me any works of art in any form and I will approve and post them on here! Much love!
