Abby Awe

Abby was born outside of Philadelphia where she was trained in ballet, jazz, contemporary and hip-hop from the age of 4 to the age of 18. Dance was her first love but acting slipped in along the way and became her true love. She graduated with a BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts where she studied with the Atlantic Acting School and the Experimental Theatre Wing. She has tripped up many with her “ethnic background” over the years so to clear the air, she is half Korean with a mix of Italian and Irish to fill in the rest. She’s a proud Leo and she’s got the mane to prove it. In her free time she puts her yoga certification to use by keeping her zen and catching up on TV classics she missed when she was a Waldorf kid for the first half of her life.

Abby was most recently featured in the world premiere of "Athena" by Gracie Gardner, a New York Times' Critic's Pick! You can read the review of her work here.
