all things creative
Nico Juber (she/her/hers) is a Los Angeles native, 19-year cancer survivor, and mother of two young children. Her debut theatrical work, Millennials Are Killing Musicals (under development by K-Squared Entertainment), is an entirely original new musical with an authentic, witty and disarmingly heartfelt take on the millennial existential crisis and the stereotypes that define a generation.
Millennials' eleven o'clock number, "Who I Am," was selected for the pandemic-postponed A Little New Music showcase and premiered at the Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP) Art of Wellness Benefit. Song "I Love You Ryan Seacrest" will be included in the The Latest Draft podcast's upcoming cabaret show. Millennials was also showcased in the New York Theatre Barn's New Works Series.
Her haunting, sci-fi short musical, Holo, won one of the top awards in the 2020 National Alliance for Musical Theatre (NAMT) 15-Minute Musical Challenge and had its premiere at the Beck Center for the Arts in Spring 2021 (in collaboration with Baldwin Wallace Music Theatre program & NAMT). She also currently works as a writer for Broadway Murder Mysteries.
After studying Philosophy and Psychology at Tufts University, Nico spent the majority of her professional career working in high tech marketing. She co-founded Tough Mamas, where the mission is to change the way new mothers approach self-care through affordable, effective, 30-minute workouts on-demand. She gives back through her small nonprofit for other young adult cancer survivors called Thrive/Survive Los Angeles, and wrote / curated the survivorship book 10toThrive.
