Rona Figueroa is a Russian doll born to immigrant Filipino parents who settled in San Francisco. At her first opportunity, age 20, she ran away to Chicago for a musical theater stint, then was lassoed to New York City where she has remained captive for over two decades. Like the famous "Valjean Val", she has tried to escape multiple times, but the artistic police keep recapturing her (she wishes they used golden cuffs, but alas!). She resigns to these shackles...for now. Music available on Spotify as Quasilulu, but complete albums on iTunes. Blogs available: applejamjamjam.com is one. Acting not always available; live theater fleeting. Currently performing in Leonard Bernstein's Peter Pan inside a Frank Gehry structure at Bard College.
