Julia Barr is an Emmy Award-winning actress. She grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she caught the acting bug at age 13 and became a star in her hometown. She was acting, singing and dancing in virtually every local production between the Fort Wayne Community Theatre, Civic Theatre, Wagon Wheel Playhouse and Enchanted Hills Playhouse.
She attended Purdue University, where she starred in such productions as Our Town, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Lover, The Killing of Sister George and Endgame. From there, she shuffled off to Buffalo's Studio Arena Theatre, where she earned her equity card starring in Scapino and in A Girl in My Soup with Van Johnson.
Barr then moved to New York and the work never stopped.
