Pearl Rhein is an actor, musician, singer-songwriter & composer based in New York City. Last year she was singing, dancing and rocking the viola 8 times a week with the Original Broadway Cast of "Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812" starring Josh Groban (with 12 Tony nominations, the highest-nominated show of the season!). In 2016, Pearl was in the Shakespeare in the Park's historic first all-female cast of "The Taming of the Shrew" directed by Phyllida Lloyd.

With a BA in Acting from Ball State University and an MFA in Acting from UC San Diego, "The terrific Pearl Rhein" (Washington Post) is "an amazing musician" (Edge Boston) "possessed of a strong, clear voice" (theatreiseasy.com) . She is also a strong, goofy, emotionally generous and down-and-dirty feminist in love with language and music and storytelling and sexuality and play. Her ideal season would include Shakespeare, Caryl Churchill, Tracy Letts, and an original ensemble-produced play-with-music based on a really good book. Pearl is especially interested in (and good at, if she does say so herself in the third person) heightened language, humor, extreme physicality, gender-bending, dialects, acting through music and playing poor white trash.

 RECENT: Pearl joined genius husband-and-wife band  The Bengsons  (NYTW's astonishing  "100 Days" ) for the  critically-acclaimed  new rock musical "The Lucky Ones" produced by  Ars Nova  at the Off-Broadway theatre  The Connelly!  The show opened March 31 and was extended before closing April 28. Pearl sang backup and played violin, viola, synthesizer, accordion, electric bass, banjo & lap dulcimer in the band!
