Biography

Biography

Anne comes to the Dallas/Fort Worth area from New York City where she worked for many years as a professional actress and musical theatre performer. Anne holds a Ph.D. in Humanities- Aesthetic Studies/Musical Theatre/Theatre - The University of Texas-Dallas, an M.F.A. in Musical Theatre – Univ. of Miami, and is an Associate Professor and Interim Department Chair in the Department of Theatre Arts at UTA. As a member of Actors' Equity Association (AEA), Anne has worked both Off-Broadway and in regional theatres across the country, with local performances at Casa Mañana and Amphibian in Fort Worth. She is thrilled to have worked with such notable directors such as Johnathon Pape, Jack Allison, and Academy Award winner/Emmy winner/Tony Award nominee Rob Marshall. Anne is an associate member of the Stage Directors & Choreographers Union (SDC) and was in their 2017-2018 observership class. Regional directing credits include serving as the Assistant Director for A Raisin in the Sun at the Tony Award-winning Dallas Theater Center, as well as joining Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall at Goodspeed Musicals in Connecticut as her directing observer. At UTA, Anne has directed DEAD MAN WALKING, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, WEST SIDE STORY, THE MUSIC MAN, RAGTIME, the regional premier of THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY, and the world premiere of TROUPERS: A MUSICAL VAUDEVILLE, to name a few. Anne’s research in the areas of vaudeville, musical theatre, and stage direction have led to multiple papers and panel discussions nationally and internationally regarding inter-disciplinary collaboration processes in the arts, as well as several creative works. Her article on her experiences at Goodspeed Musicals was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in the November 2017 issue of Theatre Topics and recently co-authored a chapter entitled “The Musical Theatre Director: The Invisible Powerhouse” for The Routledge Companion to Musical Theatre scheduled for publication in 2021. Anne will return to Europe in 2021 as a teaching artist with American Musical Theatre Live, Paris and also continue work on the libretto to a new musical about Italian sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
