Liz Rubino, MA, AEA, RDT
National Performer, Teaching Artist, Drama Therapist
Liz lives for the little moments. The little spaces of unexpected wonder in a song. That genuine suspension between audience and performer. The teaching moment when a student’s eyes register a meaningful shift. Those little moments that lift communication and relationships between people into art.
Miss Rubino has performed leading roles in professional theater and is a frequent cabaret and concert artist who’s credits include solo and duet cabarets at the Duplex, The Metropolitan Room, Urban Stages and Don’t Tell Mama as well as iconic roles such as “Rose” in GYPSY, “Countess Aurelia” in DEAR WORLD, “Madeleine True” in Lippa’s THE WILD PARTY, “Meredith Parker” in BAT BOY, “Gertrude” in HAMLET, “Romaine” in THE LARAMIE PROJECT, and “Lysistrata” in LYSISTRATA. Her debut album, Touch of the Moon was released in 2008, and her latest album, Woman Under The Covers, has enjoyed national concert engagements at Cleveland’s Cain Park and across the east coast and glowing music industry reviews.

Their hilarious, steampunk, double-entendre brimming show debuted at the Duplex in 2013, and has played regionally as well as return engagements in New York City.
