Earnest. Eccentric. Elegant.
Catherine Purcell is a millennial actor, singer, writer, part-time job juggler currently working up and down the East Coast of America, primarily residing in Washington Heights, Manhattan. Catherine grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and attended an all-girl's, Catholic high school, where her passion for performance was sparked and cultivated (also where she collected a bevy of hilarious stories centering on the misadventures of the Sisters of St Joseph and their teenage, female charges). She then went on to study music and drama at the collegiate level in Washington, DC and London, England; since graduating, she has been working with consistency on new and classic works alike in New York, Washington, and Philadelphia. At 23, she has had the privilege of performing at venues such as Joe's Pub at the Public and the Kennedy Center, has shared the stage with some of the most sought after actors in the Broadway and Regional circuits, and has been featured on three original cast recordings. She has also been a winner of the Hamilton Lottery, so she considers herself a pretty lucky gal.
In her free time, Catherine enjoys music of the indie variety, coffee, Wes Anderson and Steven Spielberg films (any good film, really), dogs, sometimes children, dissecting Shakespeare, and collaborating with her friends on sketches, music, and other original material.
