Since graduating from UE in 2011, Hannah Sullivan has continued to fuel her passion for stage management through a variety of educational and work experiences. Immediately after leaving UE, she matriculated to Yale University in the School of Drama to pursue a MFA in Stage Management. She received her MFA in May 2014.
In addition to studying at Yale, Hannah worked on the Tony-Award-winning Broadway show Beautiful, The Carole King Musical. She began as a production assistant for the stage management team in the fall of 2013. She departed the show to complete her graduate thesis and then rejoined the production as a sub assistant stage manager in March 2014. She currently holds this position.
Hannah credits UE and the Honors Program for providing her an educational experience that pushed her to her limits and encouraged her to think outside the box. She explains, “The commitment to curiosity and engagement that I found in the Honors Program has carried through to my work in graduate school and professionally. The Honors Program allowed me many opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, to develop my relationships with the professors. The Honors courses I took proved to be very challenging and very inspiring. The lectures and seminars outside of the classroom enabled me to explore other topics outside my own discipline and engage in a greater campus-wide dialogue with my fellow students and professors.”
Hannah’s future plans include continuing to live in New York City and work on plays, musicals, operas, and events.
