Nicola McEldowney is a professional performer based in New York City. An actress, director and writer with a penchant for comedy, her work has been seen on stages around the city, the region and beyond.
Perhaps best known for her work as a puppeteer, she performs regularly at theatres, libraries, schools and other venues around the region, offering a variety of puppet performances and theatre workshops/classes - for adults as well as kids.
She sometimes shocks people by revealing that she is not "just" a puppeteer but "also" an actress. Even the most dedicated puppeteer must occasionally perform hands bared for all the world to see.
Nicola is also the creator of a musical, Aisle Six, which made its off-Broadway debut in 2013 at the Lynn Redgrave Theater as part of FringeNYC, with Nicola directing. The production had previously seen a successful run at the San Diego Fringe Festival.
