who does she think she is?
Caitlin Donohue always knew she'd pursue multiple careers at once. A New Hampshire native, she spent most of her youth attending long rehearsals, creative writing, and watching Red Sox games. Her passions for theatre, writing, sports, and education shaped her experience at Boston University, where she received a journalism degree with concentrations in sociology and deaf studies.
During her time at BU, Caitlin starred in numerous theatrical productions and was elected President of the campus's largest theatrical organization. After graduating, she relocated to enemy territory in New York City and brought her Red Sox gear along with her. She works as an actor, writer, teacher, and digital media specialist, pursuing each role with equal passion and vigor.
Caitlin appeared in her first professional production at age 9. She has since performed at Fenway Park, Symphony Space's Peter Jay Sharp Theatre, Atlantic Theater Company's Linda Gross Theatre, Theatre Row on 42nd Street, Cutler Majestic Theatre, Boston Center for the Arts, Kansas City Starlight, and more. The New York Times praised her "spirited" New York stage debut in EGOT-winner Robert Lopez's 1001 NIGHTS. She recently spent two years originating the role of Addy in the critically acclaimed ADDY & UNO, the first-ever Off-Broadway musical to feature five characters with disabilities.
She's also enjoyed working behind-the-scenes as a drama teacher, acting/vocal coach, workshop director, choreographer, playwright/lyricist, and more. Her current offstage endeavor is assistant directing Broadway Youth Ensemble, a renowned children's performance group whose membership boasts over 50 Broadway shows, tours, and recordings.
Caitlin spent several summers as a performer and drama camp instructor at Derryfield Repertory Theatre in New Hampshire. After college, she dove back into teaching as the drama teacher at a Brooklyn school for children with autism. She currently teaches little ones ages 0-8 at Book Nook Enrichment, a successful early literacy studio with three Manhattan locations. She also works in administration and oversees scholarships for an elite educational consulting company.
Caitlin has worked for PBS Boston, New England Sports Network, and Golf Digest Ireland. During her six months at NESN, she wrote and published over 150 original news articles. She served as editor for her colleague's autobiography in 2016, which reached Amazon's Top 20 Performing Arts books.
She has spent the past few years as a live operations specialist for BAMTech, Disney & Major League Baseball's on-demand video platform, where she's managed thousands of live streams for NHL, MLS, and ESPN International. Her newest media venture is managing digital channels for the rapidly growing Book Nook Enrichment program in NYC.
Caitlin considers herself a lifelong learner and is always seeking opportunities to grow. Her free time consists of reading, writing, and eating her favorite neighborhood bagels. She resides in Manhattan with her husband, Michael, and their two furry children, Babushka & Brunch.
