Nancy Pop is a multifaceted performer, producer, and writer from Romania, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York.
She spent her formative years between Erie, PA and Romania, then moved 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, poets, and musicians, in addition to "In Cold Read", a monthly cold read series at Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers featuring selected works by up-and-coming playwrights and screenwriters.
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.
This summer Pop is producing and directing her first feature film, Poets Are The Destroyers, starring Synead
The next In Cold Read workshop will be held Monday, August 20th at Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers (Bushwick)
The next SHEbang! will take place Wednesday, August 15th - check back soon for more details!
