ESTHER M. COHEN • DIRECTOR - DRAMATURG
photo by Haley Jakobson.
Esther is a Philadelphia-grown, New York-based director-dramaturg. She makes plays - usually brand new, always unpretentious, and entirely driven by the brains, limbs, and hearts of the imperfect folks inside them.
Upcoming projects include the World Premiere of STACY & MIA by SMJ at the Tank and the World Premiere of JUST A PAP by Jenna Kraynak for Brunch Theatre Company's spring 2020 show.
Esther has assisted at The O’Neill Center, The Drama League, and Yale Rep and has worked in the Artistic and Literary departments of Signature and Second Stage. She is an inaugural member of the 2019/20 Roundabout Directors Group and a member of the 2019 Williamstown Theatre Festival Directing Corps. She is an alumna of the National Theater Institute and the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied Politics, Philosophy, and Economics.
Esther drinks iced coffee year-round, binges science podcasts at an alarming rate, and has never met a dog she didn't want to steal.
