Maria trained with Uta Hagen and taught acting at HB Studio. Her career began in Musical Theatre where she toured nationally and has gone on to appear in hit series such as Hacks, New Girl and Desperate Housewives. She is a first generation Greek American and speaks conversational Greek. Bold, brave, warm and vulnerable this powerhouse is funny, collaborative and sings like a lark.

Casting CSUF professor Cominis in the title role gives Bernarda Alba a professional quality it might lack with an entirely student cast.
