Elizabeth is an NYU-trained theatre artist: performer, designer, and producer.


In addition to performing on stage and screen, she hosts trivia and interactive murder mystery dinners, creates immersive burlesque extravaganzas, and provides event entertainment of all kinds.


In 2016, she founded Shag Playhouse, a performing company in residence at Shag, a woman-owned community center, art gallery, boutique, and event space in Brooklyn.


Elizabeth is a voracious reader, an activist, and a damned fine cook. Her other interests include spending time with her gorgeous, brindle cat, contact improv jams, re-reading Spinoza, sipping Irish whiskey, television shows about space, and one day playing Auntie Mame.
