Jessica Medoff

Mezzo-Soprano

Jessica Medoff is breaking down barriers, showing her multi-dimensional talents and emotional depth as an actress of stage and screen. She is praised as a performer who, “skillfully employs her trademark vocal versatility to wring every drop of emotion out…”(Harold Journal). She is sought after throughout the United States for her impressive vocal background and for her commitment to her characters. Praised as a strong, diverse singing actor, she is continually engaged in an impressive array of roles, both comedic and dramatic, among performing arts companies and producers spanning film, television, theatre, and opera. Recently, she portrayed Desirée in A Little Night Music with The Princeton Festival, participated in a workshop at the Composer-Librettist Studio with New Dramatists, and starred as Helen in the short film The Wall in the Garden, a groundbreaking sci-fi mystery. She also originated roles of Paula Strasberg, Louella Parsons, and Jackie Kennedy in the world première of a revealing new play Marilee and Baby Lamb: The Assassination of an American Goddess at the Rio Theatre in Las Cruces, NM, which subsequently had a New York industry reading at Birdland. Starring in a new movie The Heart Outright, recently released, Medoff takes on the role of Angel Childress in this gripping drama, soon to be on the film festival circuit in the coming year. Upcoming engagements include the mezzo-soprano solo in Händel’s Messiah with Las Cruces Symphony and the role of Mayzie in Seussical: The Musical, Mayor/Ma Ferd in The Toxic Avenger with Farmers Alley Theatre, and a production of The Vagina Monologues, and Heidi in [Title of Show] at Roxy Theater.

…wonderfully played…
 A Little Night Music – “Fredrik and Anne take in the show starring Desiree Armfeldt, who is wonderfully played by Jessica Medoff. When Henrik and Desiree make eye contact, it’s clear they have a history and that there’s chemistry between them.”  CentralJersey.com 
…strongest presence onstage…
Man of La Mancha “Jessica Medoff as Aldonza is the strongest presence onstage. Medoff’s soprano pushes her from gutter trash to Quixote’s queen. Her projection and dynamics work well with the lyrics Dale Wasserman and Joe Darion provide.”Deseret News 
…good singing with agile acting…
Un giorno di regno  “Act I, an absolute treat to hear and behold. Medoff combined good singing with agile acting to make Giulietta’s scenes shine.”Arts Fuse
