Next Adventure: NYU TISCH GRAD ACTING

I am honored and thrilled (read: terrified, in the best way) to be a part of the NYU Grad Acting incoming MFA class of 2020.

It is a horizon that is exciting and overwhelming and daunting and humbling and makes me want to dance all while running 16 miles through Manhattan.

I cannot wait.

Updates on performances and school related opportunities to see me crack this craft open and grow into my best self, my best actor self, coming soon!

What makes an actor, I think, is a combination of a deep curiosity about life and a case of the crazies.
— Nina Arianda, NYU Grad Acting class of '09

Here is what they said about Britian in
Portland Stage Company's production of
THE SNOW QUEEN

As stalwart Gerda, Seibert is luminous and nimble
— Megan Grumbling, The Portland Phoenix
Gerda takes the audience along on her adventures, and Seibert gives the character passion, trustworthiness and guilelessness that are fetching without seeming simple or naive.

Next Adventure: THE SNOW QUEEN

For the months of November and December, Britian will be up in Portland, ME playing Gerda in Portland Stage Company's winter production of THE SNOW QUEEN.

Based on the Hans Christian Andersen classic tale of the same name, THE SNOW QUEEN follows young Gerda as she searches for her friend Kai who has been captured by the Snow Queen and spirited away to her palace of ice. On her journey, Gerda meets a variety of magical creatures and friends, including robbers, reindeer, and witches. Featuring original music by Hans Indigo Spencer with lyrics by Emily Dickinson. This is one of the first plays that Britian ever did as a young actor!


Britian will be joining the Actor's Equity Association while in Portland.
 

LETTERS TO SALA: Reviews!

Here is what people are saying about Britian in
LETTERS TO SALA:

The revelation of this show is the performance by Britian Seibert as young Sala. We believe every step of her journey, from the naive girl thinking “it’ll be an adventure,” to the woman she becomes keeping history and herself alive. The fact that history will survive if only a glimmer of hope is kept alive is what LETTERS TO SALA brings to a world that seems just a little darker.
— Suzanna Bowling, Times Square Chronicles
...a strong, feminine performance.
— Joel Benjamin, Theater Pizzazz
For the play to work, both Sala in her 60s and Sala as a young girl have to be credible. Weakness by either would be intolerable. Both...are extraordinary in these roles... Seibert’s Sala is incandescent in her naivete, her innocence, her will to survive and her refusal to surrender.
— Sharon Anstey, The Jewish Week

LETTERS TO SALA: Review

...at the very heart and soul of this piece is Britian Seibert as young Sala. She is, to put it mildly, a revelation. Beautiful, spunky, passionate and strong... From the naive girl going off to the labor camps ensuring her loved ones that “it’ll be an adventure,” to the strong woman who emerges from the horrors endured, Seibert unearths every nuance of this character brilliantly... this was clearly a labor of love. Seibert is luminous.

LETTERS TO SALA

Britian met playwright Arlene Hutton while working in Cincinnati and was lucky enough to participate in a reading of her play PARHELIA while in the midwest, so Britian was elated to be cast in two staged readings of Ms. Hutton's play LETTERS TO SALA, playing Young Sala, directed by Eric Nightengale. The first reading was held at New Dramatists in May and the second reading will be held this upcoming week (Thursday June 18th @7pm) at Macaulay Honors College. Britian will be playing the young lead alongside Lynn Cohen (The Hunger Games, Sex and the City) and fellow Cincinnati actor, Shayna Schmidt!

THE KNICK

Britian had the immense pleasure of working with Steven Soderbergh, Chris Sullivan, and more, filming an episode of THE KNICK for HBO/Cinemax this past week. So keep a look out for her  appearing in her TV debut as a high society woman with a pretty cool hat and some serious attitude. THE KNICK will be airing its 2nd season in the Fall of 2015!

New York state of mind...

A note from Britian:

"Well, folks, it's official: I am a New York resident.

After two and a half years of traveling and working around the country, I decided to make the jump and move to New York City. It was the best move for my heart, my head, and my work. I have wanted to live here since I was sixteen years old, and I cannot express how grateful I am to all the adventures I've had, the lessons I've learned, and all the people along the way who helped me get to this place. Onto this next adventure.

Namaste.

B."
