Nova Y. Payton has been performing all her life – from her stage debut at age 3 as a flower in “Santa Comes to Cabbage Patch Land,” to her recent role as Motormouth Maybelle in Signature’s excellent production of Hairspray.

This interview was filmed last February at the Shirlington Branch Library, as a special Meet the Artist interview for African American Heritage Month.
