Nadia Harmsen – Actor
Raucous Caucus Play: The Lesson
Nadia is a recent transplant to Brooklyn. After retiring from teaching at a boarding school, she headed to the island state of Hawaii to write a book, take acting classes, and work on her tan. She accomplished two of those things. Enduring a year on the island of Oahu without Dunkin’ Donuts may or may not have contributed to her decision to move.
