Artists Studio: Radha Blank

“Radha’s singular vision, unique voice and comedic tone were immediately captivating.”

Playwright, director, producer, and actress Radha Blank is a born and raised New Yorker, harnessing the city’s living history and culture—the immigrant communities, ethnic groups, working-class folks, and struggling artists—to inspire her work as a storyteller and an artist. With writing credits that include her play SEED and popular TV series She’s Gotta Have It, Empire, and The Get Down, Blank also won the directing award at the Sundance Film Festival for her semi-autobiographical feature film The 40-Year-Old Version, which was named one of 2020’s top films by The New Yorker and both New York Times critics. She continues the artistic throughline of that project and its lead character, who vacillated between the worlds of hip-hop and theater to find her true voice, with a new mixtape performed live in the Veterans Room.


Public support is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
