Since graduating from UE in 2011, Hannah Sullivan has continued to fuel her passion for stage management through a variety of educational and professional experiences. Immediately after leaving UE, she matriculated to Yale University in the School of Drama to pursue a MFA in Stage Management. She received her MFA in May 2014.
In addition to studying at Yale, Hannah worked on the Tony-Award-winning Broadway show Beautiful, The Carole King Musical. She began as a production assistant for the stage management team in the fall of 2013. She departed the show to complete her graduate thesis and then rejoined the production as a sub assistant stage manager in March 2014. Hannah currently lives in New York City and works on plays, musicals, opera, and dance.
Hannah credits UE and the Honors Program for providing her an educational experience that encouraged her to approach learning collaboratively. She explains, “The commitment to curiosity and engagement that I found in the Honors Program has carried through to my work in graduate school and professionally. The faculty fostered an environment of interdisciplinary learning that enabled me to engage in a greater campus-wide dialogue with my fellow students and professors.”
Hannah will be joining the inaugural national tour of Beautiful, The Carole King Musical this fall.
