What they're saying:

On King John:

"Leah Alfieri as the young would-be King Arthur brings a tremendous awkward innocence to the part that jumps ably between pitiably endearing and surprisingly funny."
--Thomas Burns Scully, OnStage

On Romeo & Juliet                                                                                                                                                     "Alfieri is a punky Mercutio and makes the character gleefully brash and impudent. Her death scene is the most impressively staged of the night and required some stunt work."
--Kathy Lauer-Williams, The Morning Call

On Dead Lunch, or Who Prays for Bad Weather?                                                                                                         "...I could not wait for the next appearance of the busboy. I became increasingly eager for the lights to dim again because I knew I was going to get to see Leah Alfieri reenact another Sean rumor with swagger."
 --Ashley Cooper, Theatre is Easy 

I am an actor, musician, and playwright, based in New York City. A proud graduate of Muhlenberg College, I earned a B.A. in Theater and English in 2015. In college, I also fed my wanderlust by studying at the University of Hyderabad in Hyderabad, India. My training includes classical verse, devised theater, improvisation, and acting for the camera. I am passionate about the collaborative process, wild experiments in cooking and baking, and learning about cephalopods. (Did you know that color-changing octopi are probably colorblind? How do they do it?!) In my spare time, I play violin with NYC's Queer Urban Orchestra, and volunteer as a crisis counselor for Crisis Text Line.
