Midori Francis


Having received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University this past May, Midori is delighted and excited to be performing at Syracuse Stage. While at Rutgers, Midori had the pleasure of studying in residence at Shakespeare’s Globe in London under the guidance of Tony-nominated director Tim Carroll (Twelfth Night, Richard the Third) as well as working with directors Michael Sexton, Robert Moss, and Gabriel Bare here in the states. Favorite roles include Launce in Michael Sexton’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona and Kylie/Junko in a devised piece entitled 40N/70W directed by her teacher and mentor Kevin Kittle (In God’s Hat, Dirty Works.) This past summer you may have seen Midori on national television delivering a monologue for Liberty Mutual Insurance or riding down the streets of Brooklyn, New York on her beloved beach bike.
