A vocal advocate for the global empowerment of women and girls, award-winning actress, artist and activist Eva DeVirgilis creates inspiring performances which provide a fresh look at the challenges and new opportunities women face today. DeVirgilis sheds light on the 'seemingly superficial' topic of makeup, revealing the struggles and strengths of women just below the surface.
Eva shares historical evidence coupled with hysterical, heartbreaking first-hand stories, and peels back layer after layer of the cultural double-standards often preventing women from speaking up, speaking out, or taking on leadership positions.
DeVirgilis doesn’t alienate anyone in her audience; she takes a positive, compassionate, and inclusive approach to tough issues. Her savvy ability to educate and entertain across the racial, geographical, and political spectrum, reminds audiences that any one of us can “be the change we wish to see” by showing up, reaching out, and giving others the space to open up.
Known for her dynamic work in numerous multi-character solo-shows, you've also seen her on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Turn; Washington's Spies, Legends & Lies; The Patriots and can currently be seen waxing comically in 7 different commercials.
