Andrea J. Love is a New York City-based AEA actor, singer, composer/lyricist, teacher, and writer.

She is about to enter her second year with the acclaimed BMI Lehman Engle Musical Theatre Writers Workshop. Her final first-year (irreverent and R-rated) 10-minute musical project co-written with Alex Ngo can now be watched on Youtube!

Andrea has been working consistently since she graduated with her MFA in Acting from the University of Alabama at various theatres around the country, including Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre (Austen’s Pride – A New Musical), Capital Stage Company, Berkeley Playhouse (where she won a Theatre Bay Area Award for her portrayal of Hope in the hilarious musical Urinetown), Davis Shakespeare Festival, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, The Great American Melodrama and Vaudeville, Sacramento Theatre Company, and Maples Repertory Theatre. At TEXAS! Musical Drama she was also just crazy enough to volunteer to do fire stunts (yep, lighting yourself on fire-she volunteered to do that) under the coaching of professional stunt superstars Bill Boggs (Boggs FX) and Sherril Johnson. Unlike most of her other special skills, she cannot do this on command.

In 2012 she graduated Summa Cum Laude from Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, GA with her B.A. in Music Performance and Theory and a minor in political science. At ASC, she won several scholarships and awards for acting, singing, composing, and writing. In Fall 2011 she spent a semester abroad in Milan, Italy, studying opera with Patrizia Zanardi and composition with Roberto Andreoni. She also ran into opera legend Joyce DiDonato in a gelato shop, which is not the primary reason she’s a fan of gelato, but it definitely didn’t hurt gelato’s case.

Growing up in Seattle, she was a member of the Northwest Girlchoir for ten years, and traveled with the group to Japan, Newfoundland, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, and Australia. In Seattle she studied jazz piano with Cindy Hughen for 10+ years. She was also lucky enough to take part in the nationally recognized Young Shakespeare Workshop under the direction of Darren Ley, where her love for Shakespeare and wearing heavy costumes outdoors during the summer grew exponentially.
