Meet Emily Owens

Name: Emily Owens
What is your current project?

I run Emily Owens PR, a media relations agency specializing in new work off and off off Broadway. I work with The Kilroys, New Georges, Mac Rogers and Gideon Productions, and FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade, among others.

Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?

I love bringing attention to new plays and playwrights that people haven’t previously heard of. Nothing excites me more than getting a playwright their first New York Times review! It always starts with the play for me, and I never rep a show if I don’t dig the script. Lately I seem to be gravitating towards a lot of genre theatre (horror and science fiction) and works by women.

What’s next for you?
I’m starting a theatre company with my husband called Hot Tramp Productions. Our inaugural production will premiere at UNDER St. Marks in March 2017. Stay tuned for more on that!
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?

Strong, independent, badass girl bosses. I’m lucky to know quite a few of them!
