Jessica Bauman

Jessica Bauman divides her theatrical energies between classical verse and developing new plays. She is the founding Artistic Director of New Feet Productions, for which she directed and produced "Into the Hazard (Henry 5)", her own six-actor adaptation of Shakespeare’s "Henry V", as well as three world premieres of new plays. She is currently partnering with Baruch College Performing Arts Center to develop a production of "As You Like It" as a story about refugees. For that project, she has directed workshops for New Feet and the Drama League, and taught theater to refugees in New York and Kenya. She collaborated with The New Book Press to create WordPlay Shakespeare, a revolutionary new way of reading Shakespeare, blending video and text in electronic books.
