Alissa Cordeiro

Alissa originally hails from Massachusetts (she does not want to talk about the NBA finals this season), and studied Theater Performance at Rhode Island College, where she had a concentration in musical theatre.  Upon graduating, she began to focus more on classical theatre, spending four seasons touring with Shakesperience Productions, as well as performing contemporary and classical works in other regional productions.  Favorite credits include: Macbeth (Lady Macbeth), Twelfth Night (Olivia), A Midsummer Night's Dream (Hermia), As You Like It (Rosalind), The Shape of Things (Evelyn), The Liar's Club, and The Who's Tommy.  Between tours she had a nomadic existence all over the boroughs (also known as subletting) before finally settling in Manhattan.  This July marks Alissa's first uninterrupted year in the city, and she is currently exploring the arts and entertainment communities in the city while also planning a return to RI in July to perform in a new original work at the Artist's Exchange.  Prospective ventures include branching out in the music world, writing, and comedy.  She is also a current member of Write Act Repertory Eastside here in the city. Alissa is always seeking representation, but will also settle for a good Pilsner.
