Gloria Reuben Gloria Reuben

Gloria Reuben is an actress, singer and published author whose impressive credentials in television, film, theater and music include portraying the HIV+ physician assistant “Jeanie Boulet” on the hit NBC series ER (a role that garnered her two Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe nomination); acting in multiple regular starring roles in many other television series, including RAISING THE BAR, FALLING SKIES and Marvel TV's CLOAK & DAGGER; and most recently completing her role as Krista Gordon (the therapist to Rami Malek's “Elliot Alderson”) in the hit USA Network series MR. ROBOT. As Rolling Stone wrote in their review of the MR. ROBOT series finale: ...what makes the scene so powerful are the performances by Rami Malek and Gloria Reuben (who delivers a masterclass in how to convey so much information while making it feel emotionally resonant).”

In film, Gloria portrayed “Elizabeth Keckley” alongside Daniel Day-Lewis & Sally Field in the Steven Spielberg film LINCOLN, appeared with Paul Rudd and Tina Fey in Paul Weitz's ADMISSION, and starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in REASONABLE DOUBT. Gloria’s portrayal of Condoleezza Rice in David Hare’s play STUFF HAPPENS at The Public Theater in NYC garnered her a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress.

In music, Gloria's career includes being a backup singer for Tina Turner in 2000, which led her to record her solo record JUST FOR YOU. Gloria released a jazz album PERCHANCE TO DREAM in 2015 on the iconic MCG Jazz label, and her new album FOR ALL WE KNOW will be released on Valentine's Day 2020, again on the MCG Jazz label.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
