Jean-Michele Gregory

New York–based director Jean-Michele Gregory (Invincible Summer) works with solo performers and writers to create works based on autobiographical material. Since 1998 she’s served as constant collaborator, dramaturg, and co-conspirator on all of Mike Daisey’s monologues, directing productions at the Public Theater, Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the Cherry Lane Theatre, Intiman Theatre, the Spoleto Festival, ACT Theatre, Performance Space 122, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Portland Center Stage, and more, as well as teaching workshops and courses on the art of extemporaneous solo performance, most recently at Dartmouth and Colby College. She’s told her own stories out loud with the Moth and Speakeasy, and she’s currently at work on a memoir about her family’s exodus from Poland to Texas and what it means to forgive.
