Amy Heller Zimmerman

Writer / Co-Director / Co-Producer / Actor

          Amy is the writer, co-director, co-producer, and lead actor of My Little Renaissance Girl. Her training comes from The Academy at Black Box Studio, The London Dramatic Academy, The Second City, and Loyola University Chicago. Her credits include Edward Albee’s Fragments: A Sit Around (producer, actor, Director of Community Outreach), a five-year sold-out run of the musical sketch comedy show Single All the Way (co-writer, producer, director, actor), and a sold-out run of the original play For the Record at the Prop Thtr in Chicago (producer, co-creator, actor).

          Her professional life has been dedicated to works focused on social impact, self-referential comedy, and strong feminist perspectives which were integral to the development of My Little Renaissance Girl. Amy uses her art to explore the paradoxes of humanity; what makes us laugh during a tragedy? How seriously can we take comedy?
