Sarah Jae Leiber is a writer (mostly plays, screenplays, and essays), singer (mostly Carole King), and actor (mostly not anymore) from just outside of Philadelphia, PA. She is funny and Jewish and on Twitter.
Sarah is currently the marketing apprentice at Actors Theatre of Louisville. She also works for BroadwayWorld.com as their evening entertainment newsdesk editor (she used to be their entertainment intern before leveling up). In the past, she’s worked as a marketing associate for Muhlenberg College Theatre & Dance and as an administrative intern at Lantern Theatre Company. She’s also been a receptionist at a casino hair salon and a doughnut lady at Krispy Kreme. She has stories.
Muhlenberg College produced Sarah’s play, The Repair Man, in the fall of 2018; Rascal Arts produced her other play, Grand Theft Tea Leaves, at Theatre Row in the summer of 2017. You can find her comedy writing online at The Broadway Beat, and some essays at Uncomfortable Revolution and The Validation Project. She writes a series for BroadwayWorld about music movies.
A recent graduate of Muhlenberg College with a degree in theatre and history, Sarah wrote a thesis about C. Everett Koop, arts, and activism during the AIDS crisis. She also did a lot of dramaturgy there, most recently on Mr. Burns: a post-electric play (dir. Beth Schachter). This was thrilling and necessary because Sarah is named after Homer Simpson.
Sarah has very complicated personal relationships with an American Idol runner up and with the granddaughter of a very famous psychiatrist. She’d be happy to tell you or your publication about this, or about the time she got interviewed by a literal Nazi, for free or for money.
