Bea Goodwin

Librettist/Stage Director Bea Goodwin makes her art on the YAP scene in New York. A performance graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University and Wroxton College in the UK , Goodwin takes her acting training and infuses it into her directorial techniques and ways of storytelling. Her original pieces have had their debuts at BAM, (le) Poisson Rouge, La MaMa Experimental Theatre and less conventional venues such as the gardens of the Mount Vernon Museum, behind the gallery walls at the Blue Building and inside a 130 year old mansion in Park Slope. She is set to stage The Rape of Lucretia with New Camerata Opera this spring alongside Broadway’s ASL choreographer Alexandria Wailes, employing deaf talent to work alongside singers to tell the story. This summer, with composer Whitney George, their opera Princesse Maleine will debut with dell’Arte Opera Ensemble. Goodwin’s mission is to cultivate inclusivity in our art form, all the while pushing the boundaries of exploration.
