Sophia LaPaglia

Actor. Director.

Sophia LaPaglia is a bi-coastal actress, director and performance artist. Her primary focus is creating and developing performance work that questions and challenges conventional views on gender and sexuality. 

She has worked as an actress and director for over 20 years. Currently she appears regularly as a performer on the Magic Bus. An immersive tour of San Francisco, the Magic Bus, is a one woman show that transports the visitor into the world of the 1960s hippie underground of SF. 


Sophia began her career in Vermont, where she grew up, beginning in community theater at the age of 6.  She went on to receive several awards at high school level and work with many professional companies by the time she entered college. She attended the University of Vermont on a full scholarship where she worked with Continuing Education to create a Musical Theatre program which is still in place today.  The teachers she met while working on that program brought her to Circle in The Square Theater School where she attended the two-year program in New York City.  She worked for several years in New York before transitioning to the west coast to pursue work with the legendary feminist performance artist Annie Sprinkle. She is now directing a revival of Annie's one-woman show the Post Porn Modernist starring Madison Young, called Reveal All Fear Nothing. We are currently on tour since 2016 and continues to sell out all over the world.
