Rebecca Hart once accidentally won a comedy contest in Dublin, Ireland while appearing as musical guest. She has been an actress since her first stage appearance at nine months old and a singer/songwriter/composer for only a slightly shorter time. Based in NYC, she is a regular at venues like The Rockwood Music Hall and Joe's Pub, and has toured extensively on both coasts and in Ireland. She also sings frequently with Brooklyn-based 7-piece folk outfit the Dirty Waltz Band. Hart studied Theatre at Brown University and subsequently trained with Maggie Flanigan (Maggie Flanigan Studio). New York stage credits include productions with Target Margin, Clubbed Thumb, and New Georges, and The Civilians (Associate Artist), and numerous regional credits include lead roles at the 35th and 37th Humana Festivals (Actors Theatre of Louisville). She is the female lead in the indie film “Wendell & the Lemon” (SlamDance Fest 2015) and can be seen playing guitar and sulking in Jason Reitman & Diablo Cody’s “Young Adult". She has made songs for productions with The Civilians, Target Margin Theatre, the New Ohio’s Ice Factory Festival, the Spkrbox Festival in Oslo Norway, and the National Alliance for Music Theatre (NAMT) Conference 2014. She is currently at work on a new recording, collaborating with acclaimed cellist/songwriter Ben Sollee.
