Whitney Bashor BIO

Whitney wowed Broadway audiences as Marian/Chiara in the musical The Bridges of Madison County, singing Jason Robert Brown’s “Another Life.” The Hollywood Reporter even noted, “Strains of 1960s folk run through several numbers, notably ‘Another Life’ performed by Whitney Bashor with phrasing and flute-like vocals that pay homage to Joni Mitchell.” Her performance earned her the Clarence Derwent Award which honors "the most promising female and male performers of the New York metropolitan scene."



A native of Iowa, Whitney received her degree in Musical Theatre from The University of Michigan and has lived and worked in New York for the past 12 years. Whitney has worked regionally and Off-Broadway in The Fantasticks, Himself and Nora and earned the Barrymore Award for her performance as Clara in Philadelphia Theatre Company's production of The Light In The Piazza.



Among her TV and Film credits are Law and Order SVU, Boardwalk Empire, Love Monkey and All My Children.
