Artistic Director and Co-Founder at Ivy Theatre Company, USA
Audrey is the Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Ivy Theatre Company. Her Off Broadway production of Donkey Punch, by Micheline Auger, was a Time Out New York’s Critic’s Pick, and the Off Off production was nominated for 3 NYIT Awards, including Best Premiere Production of a Play. In 2013, she was nominated for Best Director in the Midtown International Theatre Festival for Black Ice, by Lezlie Revelle. The New York Times called her production of Like Poetry, by Kristian O’Hare, in FringeNYC a “highly promising production…beautifully structured, with an impressive blend of poignancy and humor, nicely distinct performances, and respectfully playful direction.” She directed Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, an adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher, to sold out houses at CAST in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her work was called “scintillating” by Creative Loafing and Lawrence Toppman said “I’ve occasionally heard doubts that women should direct and design plays written by men and primarily about men. ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ ought to put doubts to rest” in the Charlotte Observer. She has directed in New York, Charlotte, Seattle, and New Orleans. She is a proud feminist and is working toward a theatrical community inclusive of everyone’s stories.
