Hey there! Welcome!
I'm Kelly! I am a NYC-based theater-maker.
I believe in the magic of ensemble, storytelling, and humor. I am an "athlete of the heart" - and sometimes I go to yoga.
I studied Musical Theater at NYU/ Tisch School of the Arts, as a proud member of the New Studio on Broadway. I studied Shakespeare in Performance at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and was a member of the inaugural ensemble of the Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford in CT. When I am not onstage, I work as a teaching artist, sharing my love of all things voice, speech, and Shakespeare primarily with young people. In addition, I was ESPA Student Services Associate at Primary Stages.
Whether you want to collaborate on a future project or want to learn more about iambic pentameter, I would love to hear from you!

FIASCO 6 WEEK CONSERVATORY
This fall, I went back to school as a member of Fiasco Theater's inaugural 6-Week Conservatory.
And it was the best decision I've ever made.
I am beyond grateful for this paradigm-shifting program.
It is a gift to spend my days with these generous theater-makers (classmates and teachers alike), to rigorously investigate Shakespeare's texts, and to explore and expand my understanding of what it means to breathe, to speak, to play, to experience, to be human.
Fiasco Theater's 6 Week Conservatory has given me ways (and games!) with which to approach acting and Shakespeare's texts, but perhaps more importantly, this program has ignited within me an insatiable curiosity and a hunger to create theater in a more thoughtful, radical way.
The Conservatory may only be 6 weeks, but the lessons and people will continue to teach and light my way for years to come.
