About Me
about me.

Imani Russell is a Black+Boricua, queer+trans, and disabled multi-hyphenate artist from Crown Heights (Lenapehoking). Trained in classical music, musical theatre, and acting, Imani made their Broadway debut in November 2023 in the new musical How to Dance in Ohio. Imani has performed off-Broadway and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and is an emerging voice-over artist. As a writer, they think about the connections between time, space, family, queerness, and magic. In 2021, Imani was a member of The Lark’s Beyond the Binary inaugural cohort. They also write music under the name NANí and released a two-song EP titled sweetbitter creature in December 2020. Imani believes in creating and practicing art as an act of love+community.

Imani is an AEA member managed by CLA Partners for theatre, film, and television.

Imani is represented for commercial work by Courtney Nelson and Zachary Smith with STATE Management's Lifestyle Division.
