More on Nicco Annan
Nathaniel Nicco-Annan was born on an Army base in Germany to a black Southern woman born and a West African man from Ghana. Nicco, as he is affectionately known, was raised in Detroit, Michigan. Best described as talented and entertaining, Nicco is an impassioned spirit, who had a love for acting and dance from his earliest years. Ultimately that passion led him from Detroit to New York, where he trained under the iconic Director, Israel Hicks, at SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Acting, and earned his BFA. Shortly after that, Nicco accepted an opportunity to be a Choreographer in Residence at the Yale School of Drama. Nicco’s razor-sharp wit and emotional accessibility have driven a varied career in both Legit and Musical Theatre, as well as in Film and Television. His brand defies all of the traditional limitations. As a gay man he grew up in between the worlds of the “grand fantastical” gay scene and the rigid realities of being a big black man in America and the stigma that both can carry.
