actor, teacher, writer, director, coach
I am an actor, a teacher, a writer, a director and a coach. Thanks for checking out my site!
Directing: I had an amazing time co-directing the workshop production of KJ Sanchez's new play Too Much Water at the University of California Santa Barbara. In the words of one reviewer, this is "a show that needs to be performed on campuses all across the country." I hope that I'll have a chance to direct future productions. Here's some lovely press:
Anthony Ramos in "Hamilton"!
Teaching: My former student and great friend Anthony Ramos is ROCKING IT as an original cast member in the Broadway musical "Hamilton"! I'm particularly proud because I helped Anthony get his Equity Card by setting up for an audition for "In the Heights" at the Pioneer a few years ago which, of course, he booked! I saw Hamilton in August and it exceeded the hype. Here's what Anthony kindly said about me as a teacher: "To say Jenny is a good teacher would be an understatement. Jenny is AMAZING! Every class was inspiring, informative, and focused each week. I've never met a teacher that helps her students, just as much AFTER they graduate. She is a gem that would bring light to any stage, room, and life if you let her."
