Tracie Collins



What I Do

Born in San Francisco and bred in Oakland, Tracie Collins was inspired by the sub cultures of art, theater and stage performances anywhere from the avenues right outside of San Francisco to the abstract depth of the cultured bay area. While the oldest of her siblings and deemed responsible for their upbringing, Collins’ dreams of her voice to be heard around the world were conceived in these very moments. And it was in these moments that her modernized renaissance tale was conceived.

I was so excited to hear that you were coming on the show, because I saw your production last year. … You’ve always said that you want to be a voice for urban women. … the realistic, real-world problems that you’re bringing to light.
