Though best known as a serious Shakespearean actress, I am adept at other styles and genres as well, and enjoy surprising audiences and colleagues with my occasional comedic turns. My roles have ranged from an airhead popstar to an ambitious social climber to a grieving father. I enjoy bringing together deep dive text analysis with imaginative approaches through my Viewpoints and Chekhov training. I joy in the discoveries of a rehearsal room and in experiencing connective energy with scene partners. I never get to hold a sword as often as I would like.
The Washington Post on THE MAID'S TRAGEDY
"Smith’s brash but vulnerable Evadne is compelling, particularly in scenes that show her squaring off against men."
