My name is Olivia Grace Murphy and I am a Florida native, currently laying down roots as a theatre artist in Dallas. I describe myself as a “theatre artist” because my passion extends beyond my primary pursuit as a performer. However, Olivia Grace Murphy - Actor, Singer, Musician, Director, Producer, Stage Manager, Playwright, Dramaturg, Box Office Guru, Stagehand, and Expert Coffee Brewer seemed too long to put on a business card. In essence, I love all aspects of this crazy business we call the theatre.
My primary focus as a theatre artist involves telling stories that give voice to the LGBTQ+ community and women+. New works are my passion, but I do love working on a classic piece from time to time to remember my roots. I value collaboration, creativity, and heart. I strive to create art that is necessary, entertaining, and evocative.
In my spare time I read way too much poetry, update my dog’s Instagram, and get lost in art museums.
