Geena Quintos



Geena Quintos is a Native New Yorker born and raised in Sunnyside, Queens. She is a first generation born Filipina with a huge family filled with people with even bigger hearts. She was in the original production of Miss Saigon on Broadway as Tam at 4 years old. From that moment she knew her life and career would be in the performing arts. She began her education in the arts at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music & Art and the Performing Arts as an Acting major. During her time at Laguardia, she held roles in many plays including Hermia in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tracy in Seascape With Sharks and Dancer, Judy Shepard in The Laramie Project and others. While at LaGuardia, she was also attending the Children & Teen Program at Broadway Dance Center, training under the guidance of Claudia Oh, Stacy Webster, Jared Grimes, and Jamie J- to name a few. After finishing high school at 18 years old, she toured with A Chorus Line as Connie directed by Baayork Lee. Following the tour, she continued her education at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and continued working in New York City and other regional theaters around the country. Dedicated to new works and Asian American representation in the arts, she has originated roles in Held Momentarily, Normativity, Neptune and Soft Power (which has just finished its run at The Public Theater in November 2019). She was also a company member of Seattle Rep’s production of Here Lies Love. Geena is a coffee and dessert enthusiast (she seriously has the biggest sweet tooth) and when she’s not on stage or behind the camera you can find her teaching indoor cycling at Flywheel Sports. She currently resides in Brooklyn and is passionately driven to tell stories that have not yet been told.
