Sarah Cuneo is a born-and-raised Jersey girl who fell in love with theater at an early age – one of her earliest memories is seeing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and getting upset when she wasn’t allowed to get up on stage to dance with the Rockettes. After graduating from Princeton University with a major in Psychology and certificates in Neuroscience and Theater, Sarah decided to hone her technique and pursue her MFA at the Tony-Award winning Cleveland Play House in the Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Play House MFA Acting Program. While there, Sarah appeared in CPH productions such as The Diary of Anne Frank (Margot) and Shakespeare in Love (Molly, Viola u/s). She also appeared in MFA productions, including She Stoops to Conquer (Kate Hardcastle), Clybourne Park (Bev/Kathy), Macbeth (Witch/Lennox), and Metamorphoses (Alcyone/Various). Though she is enthusiastic about many different acting styles, Sarah particularly loves working on heightened language texts such as Sarah Ruhl, Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, and good old-fashioned farce. Sarah is a die-hard cat lover, sci-fi nerd, and coffee enthusiast. If she's not acting, she's probably reading, playing a board game, or re-watching Parks and Recreation for the hundredth time.
