Minami Yusui

Broadway Performer・ Founder of YU-project

Minami Yusui, a native of Kanazawa, Japan, has appeared in numerous theatrical productions in the US and Japan. She has been in three productions on Broadway: The King and I, Miss Saigon, and My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center. And she’s recently published her first book 『今日から始めるSHOW UPの習慣』(“The Power of Showing Up” ) in Japan. 

In 2023, Minami was selected to perform for the Emperor and Empress of Japan at the opening ceremony for the 38th National Cultural Festival and the 23rd National Art and Cultural Festival for People with Disabilities hosted by her home prefecture of Ishikawa.

Minami is also the founder of YU-project, where students and professionals break their limiting beliefs to live their most authentic and fulfilling lives by experiencing the power of the performing arts. YU-project co-organized a side event for the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities called “Disability, Diversity and Inclusion: Broadway Master Class” in 2021.

 

Minami is passionate about collaborating beyond traditional boundaries to make the performing arts accessible to everyone and bring more joy to people’s hearts.

 

Her Broadway Jazz album “playful” is available on iTunes and Spotify.
