Emma is an actor/singer/dancer who stands at a mighty 5'0" in socks, can back squat and deadlift twice her own bodyweight, sing a sustained high e-flat, build a tiered wedding cake from start to finish, and dance on pointe. Not all at the same time. But maybe. She hasn't tried...yet.
A proud graduate of Northwestern University, Emma has been seen on stages across the country, from Off-Broadway in New York City to Chicago and Indianapolis (Drury Lane Oakbrook, Steppenwolf, the Goodman, Indiana Repertory Theatre); from Washington DC (Shakespeare Theatre of DC) to Boston, the Berkshires, and Door County (Huntington Theatre Company, two summers at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and two summers at Peninsula Players).
Though she calls Chicago home, she has been lucky enough to return to NYC with frequency to workshop and originate roles in new musicals. She is ready, willing, and able to travel to wherever the work may be.
When not on stage, Emma can be found in the gym (she’s a recently crowned powerlifting champion) or in the kitchen, where she’s been exploring new ways to express her creativity via cakes and buttercream (you can find her on Instagram @delicateforkingflower).
Most recently, Emma put her pastry and puzzle-solving skills to the ultimate test when she competed alongside her mom on “Crime Scene Kitchen,” a brand-new baking competition show on Fox, hosted by Joel McHale. The dynamic duo made it all the way to the finals, and you can catch up on the entire inaugural season on fox.com.
Endlessly grateful for the support of her wonderful husband, family, and friends, Emma is ready and excited for any and all upcoming adventures as part of the Gray Talent Group roster. To learn more, visit www.emmarosenthal.com
