Kim Blanck BIO

Kim Blanck is a rising star in the world of theater, with a bright future ahead of her. Born and raised in New York City, Blanck has always had a passion for the arts, and it shows in her work as an actor and singer.

Blanck made her Broadway debut in the hit musical "Octet" in 2019, which was written by Dave Malloy and directed by Annie Tippe. The show, which was described as a "surreal chamber choir piece," followed a group of people at a support group for internet addiction. Blanck played the role of Jessica, a young woman who is struggling to connect with others in the real world.
Blanck's performance in "Octet" was praised by critics and audiences alike, with many noting her powerful singing voice and emotional depth. She was also nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for her work in the show.
Prior to her Broadway debut, Blanck had already made a name for herself in the New York theater scene. She appeared in the off-Broadway production of "Alice By Heart" at MCC Theater in 2019, which was directed by Jessie Nelson and featured music by Duncan Sheik. The show, which was a modern retelling of "Alice in Wonderland," received rave reviews and Blanck's performance as Alice was singled out for praise.
Blanck has also appeared in a number of other off-Broadway productions, including "The Mad Ones" at 59E59 Theaters and "The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical" at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. In addition to her work on stage, Blanck has also appeared in a number of films and television shows, including "The Blacklist" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
Blanck is also an accomplished singer and songwriter, and has released several albums of her own music. Her debut album, "How Much We Feel," was released in 2018 and features a mix of original songs and covers. She has also performed at a number of music venues in New York City, including Rockwood Music Hall and The Bitter End.
Blanck's most recent work includes a starring role in the world premiere of "The Visitor" at the Public Theater in New York City. The musical, which was written by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, follows a widowed college professor who travels to New York City and forms an unlikely friendship with a young couple who are undocumented immigrants. Blanck plays the role of Tarek's wife, Zainab, and has received critical acclaim for her performance.
