Monica L. Patton

is ​Currently performing throughout North America in the Broadway Tour of The Book of Mormon, Monica began penning her debut novel, Beautiful Carnage, a steamy psychological thriller about a female assassin who suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder while backstage on tour with Disney's The Lion King. Monica has worked with such notables as Jesse Norman, Diahann Carroll, and Freda Payne. She covered Eartha Kitt as the Fairy Godmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein's’ Cinderella and sang opposite Jon Secada as the Narrator in the National Tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Her other credits include; Broadway: Finian’s Rainbow, Abby’s Song, and Ragtime. Off-Broadway: Little Ham. National Tours: Annie 30th Anniversary; City Center Encores! Productions: On The Town, Pipe Dream, Fanny, Anyone Can Whistle, Purlie, Finian’s Rainbow and Applause. The Distinguished Achievement in Production award was presented to Here in Harlem: Poems in Many Voices, by Walter Dean Myers. Monica was honored to have been a Featured Narrator on the production. When Monica is not onstage, you can find her in a quick change booth--writing, perched on a stool having a cocktail or playing video games with her super cool daughter.
