Elisha Lawson

. . .

Elisha Lawson (Joseph Asagai) is happy to be making his debut here at Syracuse Stage. He’s been making a name for himself throughout the New York television scene, gaining fame for his role of Switchblade in the television series The Get Down. Additionally, he has portrayed roles in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, CBS’ Blue Bloods, and just filmed a recurring role in NBC’s Shades of Blue. He was hired by Chicago City Limits improv troupe straight out of school and has been working ever since. His theatre credits include Syncing Ink (The Flea Theater), A Christmas Carol (McCarter Theatre), To Kill a Mockingbird (Queens Theatre in the Park), and The Taste of It (Ballybeg Theater). He would like to thank God for his passion and his mom and dad for supporting it.
