“Had me feelin’ groovy…lovely contralto filled with warmth and depth…and dramatic ability…For an evening of rhythm, fun and good music, with a talented ‘Doctor turned singer’ and a band of young, good musicians, this show will not disappoint. It is a feel-good show for those lucky enough to have seen it.”
–Edie Stokes – Times Square Chronicles


BIOGRAPHY


Nicole Kafka is a talented Renaissance Woman. A New York native, she was educated at Harvard and at Cornell University Medical College. For many years, she was a colon and rectal surgeon by day and a singer by night. She closed her surgical practice in the spring of 2011 to focus on her singing and return to acting. She has sung in venues as disparate as New Jersey bars, NYC cabaret clubs, Harvard University and Carnegie Hall. Since 2011, she has been cast in leading roles on the New York stage, on television, and in numerous short films, as well as one independent feature.

“She’s clearly having fun — and so is her audience”
–Fern Siegel – Stage Door Theater Reviews – The Huffington Post
