Getting To Know: Josh

Josh Meredith, Casting Director & Resident Actor

Hey y'all. I'm Josh Meredith, the lovechild of Lady Gaga and Liza Minelli. I was born, raised, and trained (to act, sing, and dance--HOLLA Summa Cum Laude 2013 Graduate with a BFA in Theatre Performance from Marshall University!) all in my hometown of Huntington, West Virginia. At Marshall, I was granted the opportunity to craft a cabaret production as part of their mainstage season, and thus Josh M! was born, a one-man show chronicling my bizarre youth. 

I've worked regionally at several summer stock theatres including The Barn Theatre in Augusta, Michigan and Weathervane Playhouse in Newark, Ohio--my portrayal of Thenadier in Les Miserables at Weathervane won me the 2013 BroadwayWorld Columbus Regional Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical. 

I fulfilled my lifelong dream of moving to New York City in September 2013 with Jordan and Patrick. Right off the bat, I brought my one-man show, Josh M! to the Duplex Cabaret Theatre. After that, I have been doing some awesome stuff in the city with various theatrical troupes--I LOVE creating new work.

Some fun facts about me:
1) I had an image of Lindsay Lohan screen-printed on my birthday cake when I was 9 years old. 
2) I can grow a pretty awesome full beard, but a mustache refuses to appear.
3) I have a pretty exorbitant collection of wigs.
4) One of my dream roles is Hedda Gabler.

You can currently catch me singing the live choir for select performances of The Christians by Lucas Hnath at Playwrights Horizons. Hit me up if you'd like to check that out and I'll hook you up. 

See you at the show!
