Actor, Director & Joyful Spirit



Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!


My name is Larissa. I am based in NYC where I live with my actor husband and our dog, Chuck. I am a proud AEA actor, director, educator, and entrepreneur. I enjoy splitting my time between performing in musicals, plays, commercials, and directing. I love collaborating and creating in the arts. One of my favorite parts about being in this business is the constant opportunity to learn and grow.

When I am not on stage you can find me traveling, thrifting, cooking, sitting at my piano, or writing about living a thrifty lifestyle and saving the planet.

  • Mary Jane at Meadow Brook Theatre

    After three weeks of rehearsal, Meadow had to make the hard, yet right decision to cancel the show without opening. With COVID-19 spreading rapidly across the county all theaters are faced with the same heartbreak.

    It was an absolute joy bringing Amy Herzog's script to life in the rehearsal room and on stage in tech with these lovely women.

  • It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play at Arkansas Rep

    I so enjoyed spending November and December in Little Rock, Arkansas at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre.  Playing Mary Hatch was a dream come true, and telling this special story every night alongside this incredible cast was such an honor.

  • The Dottie Maraschino Show at the DARE TO BE DIFFERENT FESTIVAL

    After a summer of engagements at The Laurie Beechman Theatre for singing with Dottie Maraschino and The Stems, we were chosen to perform with Amas Theatre's fall festival in a special show directed by Randy Skinner. Inspired by the great variety shows of the 1950s and 1960s, this show brings a dose of nostalgia to a modern cabaret stage.

  • BUDDY: The Buddy Holly Story at NCC Summer Theatre

    I was so happy to have another chance to play Vi Petty in BUDDY.  This time at a theatre that was new to me, and relatively new in general.  I joined Matt McClure, Alex Crossland, Jason William Steffen and the cast of BUDDY in NCC Summer Theater's 3rd season for two weeks of packed houses and audiences up on their feet dancing some of the greatest rock and roll hits!
