2008 NAACP Award winner for “Best Actress In A Play,” Nia Orms is bringing her one woman show, “Please Take A Number” (directed by Oz Scott) to Washington DC for four nights at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Nia seamlessly transforms into desperate and hilarious characters in a New York City welfare office waiting for their number to be called and proving that they are not just another number in the system. Proceeds of “Please Take A Number” support Women for Women International.
