Who is Sol?
Made in Puerto Rico.
Based in the Bronx.
Sol Marina Crespo's favorite thing about being an actor is her favorite thing about being a writer: the development/rehearsal process. She loves brainstorming and worldbuilding with like-minded artists. She imbues her characters with subtext and complexities so they jump off the page, and because of her training in physical theater at NYU, she’s able to approach the work from the inside out and outside in. As an actor, Sol has worked with artists such as Steven Soderbergh, John Leguizamo, Tony Plana, Rubén Blades, and Míriam Colón, and she's been featured on HBO, Hulu, Amazon, and NBC among others. As a writer, she’s been commissioned by Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater and Flux Theatre Ensemble. Sol is always ready with wit, stories of culture shock, and dad jokes aplenty.
What they're saying
"Sol's writing has a natural whimsy to it. We immediately fell in love with the line she walks between reality and quirk - her characters have this believable (and ultimately quite touching) relationship infused with hilarious banter."
