Eliza Pagelle (she/they) is an actor, musician, director, and hopeless romantic with a passion for heightened language and risk-taking art. She is most drawn to characters and stories with emotional intelligence, intensity, and vulnerability. As a music double major, they’ve found joy studying singing, piano, and ear training through the Juilliard/Fordham Exchange. Along with releasing solo singer/songwriter music, she has music-directed full scale productions and composed new theatre works, notably an upcoming workshop musical based on The Seagull. Eliza spends most of her time writing letters, teaching herself new instruments, finding new meaning and significance in classical works, and above all, challenging and embracing the difficult extremes that make us human.
