Almanya Narula

Narula, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting, started Chicago Theatre Now as a graduate studies project for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. “The zine, initially a response to the lack of accountability within the art journalism sphere, is a bi-annual Chicago theatre publication, led by artists, for artists and the community to embark on conversations regarding accountability, inclusion, diversity, and equity within Chi-Theatre,” she says. In addition to producing Chicago Theatre Now, Narula is active in Chicago theatre as a performer and stage combat choreographer.
