Elizabeth Seldin

Elizabeth Seldin  has been working in the theater since before she can remember.  Having grown up at The Hangar Theatre Next Generation program her education has included: BA Drama Ithaca College, Circle In The Square (NYC) Musical Theater Summer Program, The Eugene O'Neil National Theater Institute,  and the St. Petersburg State Theater Arts Academy in Russia.  She has produced readings of her work in NYC, London at The Orange Tree Theater as well as in Connecticut and Ithaca, NY.  Most recently she has performed her one woman show "Et Le Lion"  Off-Broadway at "Theatre Row" in NYC.  "What Haunts You" made its world debut at The Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca, NY which she both wrote and performed in.  Elizabeth has been creating devised work and wearing different hats as she bands together with incredible artists to bring stories about trauma and love to the stage in many different ways. Most of her work includes music and movement as well as a play with that which is intangible. She is incredibly grateful to all the artists she gets the gift of working with.
