Zuri Adele is currently in pursuit of her M.F.A. in acting at the University of California, Los Angeles, as one of eight actors in the university's inaugural interdisciplinary graduate acting program. Before arriving to UCLA, Zuri trained and studied at Spelman College in Atlanta, and at the British American Drama Academy in London. Zuri is currently taking the lead as Vindici in UCLA's gender-swapped production of Revenger's Tragedy, directed by the award-winning Lisa Wolpe. Last year, she starred as Josephine Baker in the world premier of La Perle Noire, also at UCLA. In 2013, Zuri performed in the National Black Arts Festival's staged reading of Da Kink in My Hair with Angie Stone, Melanie Fiona, and Terri J. Vaughn in Atlanta, Georgia.
Under the direction of Kenny Leon, Lydia Diamond, Jasmine Guy, and Latonya Richardson-Jackson, she has performed and understudied timeless works at Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre in Atlanta. She is also known for her work with the Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre and Georgia Shakespeare. A global trendsetter, Zuri spent months teaching acting workshops at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. Having worked with William Morris Endeavor and the Creative Mind Group at both the Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festivals, Zuri strives to provide similar opportunities for students to network and study internationally. Zuri's professional work has garnered public recognition. In 2012, The Black Women Film Network awarded her the Roger Bobb Scholarship at its annual luncheon in Atlanta.
