Known for her “songbird-like ability,” Ms. Jacobs made her Broadway debut starring opposite Lin-Manuel Miranda, playing Nina Rosario in the final Broadway cast of his four-time Tony Award® and Grammy Award® winning musical In The Heights. Praised as “compelling” and “radiant” by Variety Magazine, and her voice as “powerful” by The New York Times, Ms. Jacobs continued to wow audiences with starring roles in Wicked on Broadway, Rent (Mimi), Disney’s High School Musical (Gabriella), Two Gentlemen of Verona (Julia) at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington DC, and Into the Woods (Baker’s Wife) where she performed opposite Emmy®-nominated actor Tituss Burgess.
