Rebecca Hart

performer and writer

Rebecca Hart once accidentally won a comedy contest in Dublin, Ireland, while appearing as the musical guest. True story. Born into a theatre family, she made her acting debut at the age of nine months and has been playing music (with and without her 6-piece band) for only a slightly shorter time. Her latest recording, 'The Magician's Daughter', was produced by Ben Sollee in Louisville KY and Ben Arons in NYC. Recent acting credits include the Public Theatre's Rust Belt tour of 'SWEAT' and a CT Critics Circle Award for 'The Revolutionists' in West Hartford. Recently, her career grew another head (arm?) after she got her MFA in Book and Lyric writing at NYU's The Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. Her musical' 'IRON JOHN: an american ghost story', (w/collaborator Jacinth Greywoode) was developed at NYU, the O'Neill Center, and Theatreworks Silicon Valley before showcasing at the National Alliance for Musical Theatre Festival at New World Stages in 2019. 2020 will (somehow) bring three virtual university productions, as well as a workshop of her short-form opera commission "the barren(s)" (w/composer Amber Vistein) at the Kennedy Center (American Opera Initiative). Currently, she performs a weekly quarantine-time cabaret, "The Chrysalis" every Sunday at 4PM on Facebook Live.
