Nancy Pop is a multifaceted performer, producer, and writer originally from Romania, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. She spent her formative years between Erie, PA and Romania, eventually moving to Arkansas with her family because life is weird like that. It was in the South where she developed a love for writing, theater, and performance as a coping mechanism against the suffocating college football craze.
After three years of expanding her student loan collection, Pop graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in Spring 2016 with her B.A. in Theater Performance and Playwriting. She hosts "SHEbang", a monthly variety show in New York City featuring an all-female line up of comedians and poets, in addition to hosting "In Cold Read", a monthly playwriting workshop at Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers. Pop is the Director of Media and Production at The Theater Collective, where she is developing the company's first season of theatrical works. She is a producer for The Molok, a film by Sam Wilson and Xander Chauncey.
When she's not working on her next project, performing, or hosting shows, you can find her eating Takis in her living room and contemplating a career change in finance because her parents won't shut up about it. But she won't do it. Because she loves what she does. She also doesn't know anything about finance.
