Get to know the staff here at Classic Stage Company! First up, meet our new Audience Services Manager, Gina Cimmelli. How long have you worked at CSC? I started as a freelance House Manager in 2009 and became a full time employee in September. Tell us about what you do on a daily basis. I am here for the customers. A friendly face to help sell tickets, book memberships, reserve group sales, and arrange accessible seating. I’m in the box office Monday through Saturday to answer any and all questions. Also if you’re looking to usher for a performance, feel free to contact me at email@example.com. What did you do prior to joining CSC? I worked for the Tribeca Performing Arts Center as the Senior House Manager, where I worked on numerous dramas, musicals, & dance performances. My favorite project with TPAC was the Tribeca Film Festival. What has been your favorite CSC production to work on? I really enjoyed working on Venus in Fur. It has such an amazing script and the audiences were never disappointed by a performance. I also enjoyed Three Sisters last season. The cast was so dedicated and strong. What is your favorite classical work? I’m a fan of anything Shakespeare or Molière. What do you like to do in your free time? I am a musician. I perform with my band Gina’s Picture Show up and down the east coast. Stop by and visit us at ginaspictureshow.com. What’s your favorite CSC neighborhood hang out spot and why? I love going to the farmers market in Union Square on the weekends. The local treats are delicious. Though to be honest, I come in for Everyman Espresso even on my days off! Their drinks are amazing and the double chocolate chip cookies are the best medicine for a busy day! What is your favorite color? Blueberry! Looks just like the food, but sadly doesn’t smell as nice. What is your favorite book? Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, although I am very partial to J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
