Actress & Playwright
I'm a lion in a kitty cat suit.
Marcy Lovitch moved to New York City after getting a B.A. in Journalism from Temple University with hopes of becoming her own triple threat: Actress, playwright and magazine editor. Over the course of more than 20 years, Marcy has appeared in numerous Off and Off-Off Broadway productions while finding work as a book publicist, office temp, cater waiter, fact checker, legal word processor, dog walker and a cigarette girl, to name a few. She performed her one-woman show, Dirty Laundry in the New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC), at New York’s Independent Art HERE and Philadelphia's Womenspeak Festival (Walnut Street Studio Theater). Besides her solo show, she’s performed as an actress in productions at Ensemble Studio Theater, Primary Stages’ Detention series, numerous short films, a handful of TV shows and a few feature films – sometimes with speaking lines. In the early 90s, she was part of Theateroke, an improv group that performed weekly at New York Comedy Club. Some nights she kicked major ass and managed to be really funny.
Always the optimistic overachiever, she stayed true to her plan to become a playwright. Her most recent full-length play, Inappropriate Relationship was part of NYWinterfest’s 2017 Theater Festival (Hudson Guild Theater, NYC) and received a Best Play nomination. Other plays include Office Politics, produced in June 2015 by the Long View Theater Company (June Havoc Theater, NYC); Ode to Brad (Ensemble Studio Theater, co-writer) and A Brooklyn Romance, (Ensemble Studio Theater). Often sacrificing little luxuries like eating out, shoe shopping and sending out her laundry, Marcy chose to invest her time and paychecks studying acting and writing at New York University; HB Studios; the National Shakespeare Conservatory; Michael Howard Studios; Ensemble Studio Theatre; Primary Stages' Einhorn School of the Arts (ESPA) and the Atlantic Theater Company. Along the road she continued to show her commitment and became a member of Actors’ Equity Association, SAG-AFTRA and The Dramatists Guild of America, Inc. and pays her dues regularly.
