ARTURO LUÍS SORIA is an actor and playwright based in Brooklyn where he spends most of his days writing and avoiding the gym—though he knows full well the endorphins feel great afterwards. He made his Broadway debut in a short play called The Inheritance by Matthew López and directed by Stephen Daldry and then they won on a couple Tony’s so that was pretty dope!
His one-man show, or, one-woman show--it’s up for debate--NI MI MADRE had it’s World Premiere at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre when theaters reopened post-pandemic. It was the third show to open and the only Latine show in the off-Broadway season. En serio tho, we need more Latine programming so…
At one point, he was compared to a young Al Pacino by Hilton Als from The New Yorker for his portrayal of the fast-talking-hip-swishing-sharp-tongued Tano in the World Premiere of Hit the Wall by Ike Holter at Barrow Street Theatre and Steppenwolf Theatre. That was unexpected and ummm, Al Pacino? Coño.
Arturo is a theatre person through and through pero don’t let his propensity for size fool you, he does TV and film too. He’s been seen on Insatiable & The Blacklist and is currently playing opposite Vince Vaughn in Bad Monkey on Apple TV+.
He holds and MFA in acting from the Yale School of Drama (sorry Geffen, I just can’t); a BFA from The Theatre School at DePaul University; and was part of the inaugural class of TV writers in Lena Waithe's Hillman Grad mentorship program.
