At present, Annabel is based in Brooklyn, New York and works as the Company Producer for Sweat Variant, a studio working at the intersection of dance, theatre and visual art. Prior to this, they worked at Roundabout Theatre Company for three years, supporting the work of playwrights and emerging directors and producing new play readings as the Artistic Programs Manager.  

Most recently, Annabel directed here i fall up, a new queer, haunted folk musical by Beth Golison at the New Ohio Theatre's final Ice Factory Festival, and the world premiere of As I Was, Not As I Am by August Hakvaag at WP Theater as part of the Moxie Arts NY Incubator Program.

As a director, they enjoy working on new plays and devised works that tackle otherness and the limits of ethics and morality. They love spectacle, magic, transformation, and making the impossible and unexpected appear onstage.  Additional NYC credits include readings with Breaking & Entering Theatre Collective, Theatre Write Now, and Moxie Arts NY, assisting at the NAMT Annual Festival of New Musicals and the Keen Company Keen Teens Festival, and directing for 24 Hour Plays: Nationals. After graduating from Northwestern University with degrees in Theatre and Sociology, Annabel completed Studio Theatre's directing apprenticeship in Washington, D.C. Select Northwestern directing credits include an immersive production of The Visit, The Donkey Show, and Carrie the Musical. While at Studio, they assisted David Muse on Cock, Joanie Schultz on 2.5 Minute Ride, and Henry Godinez on George Brant's new play Tender Age.


Annabel has collaborated on a number of puppetry and toy theatre adaptations, including a workshop of Italo Calvino's The Distance of the Moon and an original devised fairytale called Rona. Annabel has also developed their own solo puppetry and performance work, including a ten-minute original piece called A Very Normal Hike. She is passionate about spectacle and sparking moments of wonder in public places, and has directed several free, site-specific adaptations inspired by Where the Wild Things Are, Clue, and The Little Prince at libraries, gardens, beaches, and parks.
