Valerie Geffner has performed on the stage since she was a little girl. As a college student, she studied musical theater at The University of Michigan, before being accepted to the Drama division at The Juilliard School. After graduating from Juilliard, Valerie starred in a number of independent films. These included “Queenie in Love” (shown at the Cannes and Deauville film festival ) and “Poster Boy” (shown at The Tribeca Film festival). She understudied on Broadway for Parker Posey in “Taller than a Dwarf”, directed by Alan Arkin. For the past decade, Valerie has focused on writing and performing her own music, including the pop opera “antenna”. (Deepak Chopra interviewed her about the album). Valerie has performed in various New York City venues, including Joe’s Pub and Webster Hall, as well as venues in Los Angeles and Berlin. Recently, Valerie rekindled her passion for acting by serving as a performance coach at the Long Island High School of the Performing Arts. Since then she has performed in the “Carmen Variations” at the Here Arts Center, as well as several short films. Valerie is thrilled to be part of this team and production. www.
