Jennifer Lim

JENNIFER LIM made her Broadway debut starring in David Henry Hwang’s Chinglish, for which she earned a Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut, the IASNY Trophy for Excellence, and a Drama Desk Nomination. She was also named “Most Exciting Broadway Newcomer” in New York Magazine’s 2011 Culture Awards. A native of Hong Kong, Jennifer graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Bristol University in the UK before coming to America to study for her MFA in Acting at the Yale School of Drama. Since then she has made a career in helping to develop new works Off-Broadway, at Sundance Theater Lab, Berkeley Rep, Goodman Theater, The Public Theater, MTC, Ars Nova, The Women’s Project, New Dramatists, and Ma-Yi Theater Co. to name a few. Her collaboration with PlayCo last year on Christopher Chen’s critically acclaimed Caught marks the first time she’s worked with PlayCo and she hopes it won’t be the last! She is absolutely thrilled and honored to be MC-ing and participating in their Cabaret Gourmet this year with her colleague and friend from Caught, Leslie Fray.
