Minami, a Broadway actor originally from the city of Kanazawa, Japan, has been in three productions on Broadway: The King and I, Miss Saigon, and My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center.
Aside from performing, Minami is a self-proclaimed health nut. Her Broadway colleagues seek her holistic care advice so often that her dressing room is usually known as the "Minarmacy" (“Minami” plus “pharmacy”). Her passion for food, travel, and helping others explore natural healthcare options even inspired her to travel to Rishikesh, India to become a certified Yoga instructor.
Minami lives with her loving, trumpet player husband, Dan, both proud New Yorkers for over ten years.
In 2014, she founded YU-project, where students and professionals break their limiting beliefs to live their most authentic and fulfilling lives.
