Rachel Covey is a 20 year old writer and composer, currently studying theatre at Northwestern University. She began her career as an actress, working in theatre and film (professional credits here). Inspired by these experiences, Rachel wrote Waiting Room, a self-authored one-act, one-woman play which she performed at Manhattan Repertory Theatre’s One Act Play Festival (NYC), Capital Repertory Theatre’s Young Voices Summit (Albany, NY), and The Player’s Theatre (NYC). Since, she has written book, music & lyrics for Painting Faye Salvez, an original musical about the family and friends of a girl who’s been missing for three years and a young artist who promises to truthfully capture her in a family portrait. Painting Faye Salvez has received readings and workshop productions at the New York Musical Festival (NYMF), the Library at the Public Theatre, and Northwestern University. Next month, Painting Faye Salvez will receive a reading at Tuacahn Theatre’s New Works Festival!
