ABOUT LAURA HEYWOOD/BROADWAYGIRLNYC
Laura Heywood is a multi-faceted performer, pundit, social media personality, writer, spokesperson & host. Over years as a national radio host and commercial actor, she quietly cultivated a secret alter ego called @BroadwayGirlNYC — a self-described advocate, ambassador, fan and best friend to the Broadway community — which soared to over 25,000 followers and became an online phenomenon. Laura’s reveal as the force behind @BroadwayGirlNYC came in February of 2015, when she was invited to speak onstage at TEDxBroadway. Now, having fully integrated @BroadwayGirlNYC into her professional identity, Laura works as a consultant for theatres, celebrities, and businesses; hosts workshops and offers private coaching for performers looking to raise their social media profiles; writes for theatre-themed publications including BroadwayWorld and Playbill; and is in high demand to cover Broadway news, contribute expert commentary, and host interviews both on-camera and on-stage — in addition to tweeting with inexhaustible joy at twitter.com/BroadwayGirlNYC.
