"If there is a second headline, it is the local discovery of Brinie Wallace as a radiant, vibrant Timoune...she leaves no doubt she has the powerful appealing chops to take the lead in mainstream musicals."
— Bill Hirschman, Florida Theater On Stage
"Once on this Island" Review
My name is Brinie (bry • nee) Wallace, and I'm a Denver-based actor considering the BIG MOVE to New York!
Born and raised in LA County, my love for acting began in my Charter Oak high school drama class, which pushed me to become a YoungArts Theatre Finalist in 2012. It was there, surrounded by immensely talented and like-minded individuals that I felt affirmed in my artistry and was blessed with the opportunity to audition for, attend, and soon graduate from Penn State's musical theatre program.
Post-graduation, I understudied Nabulungi, and regularly played Sadaka in both the Australian premiere and the N.A. International Tour of The Book of Mormon until the pandemic hit.
Now, as we continue to transition out of this pandemic, I've not only starred in the Slow Burn Theatre Co.'s production of Once on this Island, playing my dream role of Timoune(!) , but have also made my
BROADWAY DEBUT as the role of Nabulungi in The Book of Mormon musical. I've also had the great pleasure of swinging the Broadway-bound musical, "A Beautiful Noise" ! Truly an incredible turn-of-events. Here's hoping that there's more opportunities like that to come... *hint hint* In the meantime, take a look around, and don't be a stranger! Hope to hear from you soon, friend!
