"Ms Simon brings an energetic persona to Logan with a mix of emotionally charged urgency that is endearing yet nerve racking" - Broadway World
"Logan, played with energy and a high dose of stress by Genevieve Simon" - Sarasota Herald-Tribune
"just the right air of comic sincerity and intensity...Simon has a firm command of her character as an artist who both believes in and doubts herself." -Sarasota Magazine

Heading to Sarasota, Florida to play Logan in Larissa Fasthorse's satire The Thanksgiving Play!
Is it possible for a troupe of all-white teaching artists to create a culturally sensitive pageant to celebrate Native American Heritage Month? Subversive, absurd and endearing, The Thanksgiving Play is a blistering satire that hilariously dissects political correctness, just in time for the holidays.

Delighted to be back in the room at Ensemble Studio Theatre for another reading of Susan Bernfield's excellent play Sizzle Sizzle Fly, a drama about Frances “Poppy” Northcutt, the first female engineer to work in NASA’s Mission Control.
Directed by Linsay Firman, sound design by Kate Marvin.
Sizzle Sizzle Fly had its first public reading in January 2017 as part of that year’s First Light Festival.

Heading to Omaha this summer to play Hamlet for Nebraska Shakespeare!
"A young man returns home from school abroad to attend the funeral of his father. Too soon after, he finds himself at the wedding of his mother and his uncle. A ghost. A struggle with destiny. A cry of players. A sparrow. A lost love. Shakespeare’s most popular tragedy journeys through a deep and painful inspection of humanity, ambition, and mortality; an electrifying tale laced with deception and terror."
Directed by John Hardy
June 27- July 6

Genevieve will be playing the role of Melanie in the world premiere of Adaptive Radiation this winter at Denizen Theatre in New Paltz, NY!
"Four millennials are catapulted into whimsical chaos by a strange, contagious, other-worldly spec of light. A mystical, energetic comedy that asks us to look into our assumptions about adulthood, career and education as we reflect on the need to take action, before falling prey to the existential blackness inhibiting our contemporary world."
