Samantha Marie Ware (Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds) is an actress with credits including LION KING, BOOK OF MORMON, and HAMILTON. She has also been featured on the big screen in GLEE, MARGOT VS LILY, BARRY, and CHICAGO MED. Also advocating for social equality, race and gender, Ware considers herself a #smartbrowngirl and will continue to fight for the movement that supports young black women in celebrating their ubiquity as females of color, defining beauty on their own terms and bursting the glass ceiling.

Murder Ballad, By the Way Meet Vera Stark, and The Miracle Brothers.

Karen is scheduled to release her first solo album this year.
