Emily Skinner

portrait of Emily Skinner


Emily Skinner has unequivocally established herself as one of Broadway’s most engaging and versatile performers. She was most recently seen in the Broadway bound musical Once Upon a One More Time at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, DC, and on Broadway as Georgia Holt, Cher’s Mother in The Cher Show. In the fall 2017 Broadway season, Emily had the honor of being directed by Hal Prince in his new show Prince of Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club, where she was nominated for an Outer Critic’s Circle Award. She was also seen that same year Off-Broadway in Transport Group’s much lauded revival of Picnic (she was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her performance). She appeared previously on Broadway starring in the acclaimed musical Billy Elliot. Handpicked by Oscar-winning director Stephen Daldry, she was the very first American selected to play the role of Billy’s dance teacher, Mrs. Wilkinson, and received a Broadway World Award for her performance. Emily was nominated for a Tony Award (along with Alice Ripley) and received a Drama League Award for her performance as Daisy Hilton in the brilliant but short-lived Side Show. Her other Broadway credits include Jekyll & Hyde, James Joyce’s the Dead (opposite Christopher Walken), The Full Monty and Dinner At Eight (Outer Critics Circle nomination). She has appeared in numerous productions around the country, headlined with symphonies around the world, and her many recordings can be found on and iTunes.
