Hi! I’m Laura Dadap.
I’m an actor-musician born and raised in NYC, currently residing in Sunnyside, Queens. My parents, both classical musicians who run a not for profit orchestra together, encouraged me to study an instrument as a child. After trying violin, guitar, and piano I finally landed on the cello which I trained in a pre-professional conservatory program until the age of 18.
I went on to study voice at LaGuardia High School and later earned my BFA in Acting at Emerson College in Boston where I also was able to take classes at Berklee College of Music. Upon moving back to New York, I got to experience the rest of the country and far corners of the world on tour with Nickelodeon: Storytime Live! and The Voca People.
I’ve now picked up a few more instruments down the road (electric bass, glockenspiel, tambourine, thumb piano, and a vintage Hohner student accordion I’ve named “Wheezy”) and find my time most joyously spent workshopping new works for actor-musicians, riding my bike, in residency at Rockwood Music Hall with my band Macabre Americana, collaborating with other talented musicians, and making hot sauce with my husband.
