Elizabeth is an NYU Tisch trained theatre artist: performer, producer, designer, and movement director. She delights in performances that let her switch characters at the drop of a hat, and has many, many times played the role various women on stage.
Formerly the director of performance programming for Shag Playhouse, a performing company in residence at Shag, a woman-owned community center, art gallery, sexy boutique, and event space in Brooklyn, Elizabeth is currently in residence with Torn Out Theater working on a fairy tale adaptation: Danced to Pieces.
In addition to performing on stage and screen, Elizabeth hosts trivia and interactive murder mystery dinners, creates immersive burlesque extravaganzas, and provides event entertainment of all kinds. She also runs several workshops, available for groups large and small - email for booking availability.
Elizabeth is passionate about books, shoes, and food. She is an activist, a somatics junkie, and a damned fine vegan cook. Her other interests include spending time with her gorgeous cat, contact improv jams, re-reading Spinoza, sipping Irish whiskey, television shows about space, and one day playing Auntie Mame.
