Sonia Soudry has lived many lives in one – and shows no signs of slowing down.Born in Algiers in 1949 to a traditional Jewish family, Soudry played piano and quickly discovered a love of theater that was not readily accepted by her family. Her father played the trumpet and hoped that his daughter would follow in his musical footsteps, but she was intoxicated by the multifaceted ways to tell stories on stage.
