Alessandra Ruiz is a Cuban-American actress with a B.A. in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Physical Theatre from California State University, Fullerton. She also had the opportunity to train with Frantic Assembly for devised and physical theatre work. She grew up in Los Angeles, California, but relocated to the East Coast to pursue theatre in NYC.
Alessandra recently performed in Bated Breath Theatre Company's award winning production of "Voyeur: The Windows of Toulouse Lautrec" which closed July 2021. She is currently playing Valerie Solanas, Julia Warhola, and Giant Andy Puppeteer in the company's production of "Chasing Andy Warhol" in the East Village.
Alessandra's passion for theatre comes from the need for representation in the arts. As she fell in love with performing as a child, she didn't see much of herself or her people reflected in media. As a Latinx actress, she wants to give a voice to her community. Alessandra believes theatre is a powerful art form that can truly help make a change. She loves the stage, but also has passions and works in film/tv, voiceover, and educational theatre for kids.
