Book & Lyrics
Kim is a musical theatre artist with experience in performance, writing, and directing. She first “caught the bug” at age 9 as an orphan in Village Theatre’s production of ANNIE starring Megan Hunt, and more early main stage roles at Village followed. Later, as an adult, she has appeared with Open Circle, Secondstory Repertory, Bailiwick Repertory (Chicago) and many others. As a director, she helmed short plays for Appetite Theatre Company and Brown Couch Theatre Company in Chicago, Assistant-directed with James Bohnen for Remy Bumppo’s production of POWER (at Victory Gardens, Chicago), and studied directing with 2018 Tony winner David Cromer. As a writer, Kim has studied playwriting at Smith College with Andrea Hairston, at Gotham Writer’s Workshop (NYC) with Richard Caliban, and Sketch Comedy Writing with Kevin Allison at People’s Improv Theater (NYC). Her favorite project to date blended her love for both performance and writing, in cabaret troupe acts at Voltaire Supper Club in Chicago, where she wrote and performed, creating several memorable song parodies and sketches (her personal favorite: a raunchy “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays”). ANGRY ANNIE is her first full-length musical.
