CHERYL KING - BIO

Cheryl King is the owner, and artistic and managing director, of Stage Left Studio, the most beautiful little theater in NYC. She was resident acting coach at All My Children, the Emmy-winning daytime drama at ABC, from 2007-2010. Her performance background includes multiple careers, in vaudeville/burlesque, mime, 13 years in standup comedy and 15 years in theatre in NYC. Her internationally acclaimed solo show, "not a nice girl", has had runs Off-Broadway in NYC, in Los Angeles and Ft. Collins, CO. Her television credits include ABC's 20/20, and Faking It on TLC, in an episode that was also featured on Oprah! She is currently performing Sally Lambert’s solo play Grapefruit in an extended run at Stage Left Studio.

She created and performs in Forbidden Kiss LIVE, a variety show with a cast of 8 artists, and regular guest stars, all who contribute original material. This celebrated show has been running at Stage Left for six years, and won for Stage Left the title “New York’s Best Sexy Theatre” from the Village Voice. In 2010, her theater was featured in tdf “Stages” and the NY Times referred to her as “the matriarch of the Off-Off Broadway solo scene.” Back Stage commissioned her to write an article on the craft of acting in a solo show for their April 2010 edition.

She formed her own production company, Cheryl King Productions, in 2000, and has produced several acting retreats, over 300 showcases, and three years of V-Day events. She is the creator of the Left Out Festival, an annual festival of gay performance art, which has been presented since 2008, and is a benefit for Bailey House and GMHC. For her work in promoting gay performance, she was chosen as one of the 100 Women We Love in GO Magazine's June 2008 Annual Pride Issue. In November 2008 she was chosen "Person of the Year" by nytheatre.com. She also created the Women At Work Festival, which had its fourth year at Stage Left in October 2010, and which contributes funds to Friends of Niger, the Young Girls Scholarship Fund. Ms. King has curated solo shows for the Estrogenius Festival at ManhattanTheatreSource since 2005. In October 2010 she inaugurated the Mama Drama Festival, a festival of theater about mothers, at Stage Left.

Her innovative Body Language workshop has been a big success since 1998 and she has served as an expert consultant for books and magazine articles, including a major feature in WWD, the magazine.

Ms. King is co-writer of the full-length play, Arturo's Window, which has been presented as a staged reading at several NY theatres. She also wrote the one-act “Art/Sex” which was presented at Stage Left in 2009, and is currently working with TC Corwin on a new one-act called “The Podcasters” which will premiere in the spring of 2012. She coaches adults and children privately, teaches two children’s acting classes in her technique called Whole Body Acting, teaches weekly writing workshops, and has written a book about her approach to playwriting, called “Writing Your Heart Out.”


She is a contributing writer to Glenn Alterman’s “Creating Your Own Monologue” and the arts paper Soul of the American Actor. She is an advisory board member of ARIA and a member of the Dramatists Guild and National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. In 2009-2011, she directed solo show artists Frank Blocker in his Drama Desk-nominated Southern Gothic Novel; Taren Sterry, in her show 180 Days, currently touring the US; Joe Hutcheson, in his play Miss Magnolia Beaumont goes to Provincetown, which earned rave reviews in the 2010 New York Fringe Festival, and Theresa Gambacorta in her latest show “The Vegas Project”.
