Hi everyone! I’m Jeanette. Pleased to meet all of you!
I’ve been an actor in NYC for over 10 years. As an actor I’ve performed in numerous theatrical productions in New York and across the US, and has performed with improv comedy troupes American Standard and National Comedy Theater. My self-produced solo show, “Love. Guts. High School,” developed with playwright Matt Hoverman, premiered at the Midtown International Theatre Festival where it earned nominations for Best Actress and Best Solo Show, and then went on to the Chicago Fringe Festival (named a Time Out Chicago “Critic’s Pick”) and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I have a BA in Theater and Dance from Trinity College, CT, and when not doing any of the above, I’m introducing tourists to my favorite city in the world as a licensed NYC tour guide!
In 2007 I founded my production company, Kelly’s Pool Hall Productions - a NYC-based production company dedicated to creating exciting new content while also providing independent producing, managing, and consulting services to the community of artists in New York. My original series "Ghost Light,” about a motley crew of theatrical stagehands, has been an Official Selection of the Miami, UK, and Austin Web Fests, and has earned nominations for Best Comedy, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Editing at the Indie Series Awards. It has now partnered with digital platform Seed & Spark for streaming and distribution. www.seedandspark.com/watch/ghostlight. My latest series, “The Scoop,” is a hybrid food-talkshow where I interview professionals in the entertainment industry over awesome NYC ice cream. 7 episodes were released this summer, and we’re now seeking co-production partnership or distribution to move it forward. www.watchthescoop.com.
