Anthony Martinez-Briggs

"A Free Man of Color"

Washington, D.C., native Anthony Martinez-Briggs is a senior Acting major at the University of the Arts. He describes his role as Morales in "A Free Man of Color" as "an integral part of what I feel to be an excellently written play. My interest is even further heightened with the opportunity to work on this particular play under the skilled direction of Matt Pfeiffer."

Martinez-Briggs attended the University’s Pre-College Summer Institute in 2008, where he met faculty members Aaron Chromie and Johnnie Hobbs, which convinced him to attend UArts. His live hip-hop/funk/ska/soul/rock band ILL DOOTS is making strong moves in the Philadelphia music community.
