Ars Nova welcomed the early workshops of her one woman show, Kelly Kinsella Live! Under Broadway, which went on to be produced at Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre in both NYC and LA, and culminated in a run with the NY Fringe Festival where she was recognized by Backstage NY and listed at year’s end amongst 20 performers in their article, “Performances to Remember.” Her first one woman show, Excuse Me, I Appear to Have Misplaced My Soul, was a critic’s pick at the Orlando Fringe. The NY Times hailed Kelly’s performance in NYFringe’s musical production, Believe in Me: A Bigfoot Musical, as “terrific and zany.” Kelly is a Manhattan Monologue Slam champion. She performs stand-up in NYC and LA and does yoga around the world.
