Biography

Steven Fogelman is not only a playwright, actor, and singer, but also an accomplished painter, chef, designer and filmmaker. It is these diverse interests that exposed him to unique experiences and situations, allowing him to integrate them into his crafts with acute honesty and complexity.

Steven first developed his visual skills receiving a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, which became the basis for his play charrette. An exchange year in Lausanne, Switzerland not only benefited him becoming fluent in French, but he also gained a passion for haute cuisine, foreign languages and accents that are now hallmarks of some of his short plays.

For a year after graduation he studied at Pittsburgh Filmmakers before moving to Los Angeles to work as a film art director. Steven soon decided to persue acting, spending three years studying at The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute, where his passion for art became and early version of the play, Hey Picasso!.

After, the production of Hey, Picasso! and several companies performing his short play Day One, he missed the writing on the wall to become a playwright and hurled himself into the LA dream of screenwriting, studying the craft of story structure at Writer’s Boot Camp where he completed the features, My Guy, Dead or Alive and The First Gentleman.

He took his filmmaking knowledge and joined Filmmakers Alliance, with whome he wrote, produced and directed several shorts, most notably Limbo, which screened at the Tiburon, Ashville and New Orleans film festivals.

As an actor in LA he originated the role of Leo Feldman in An Act of Reparation at the Odyssey Theater, and has put his own mark on roles in popular shows like Smoke and Mirrors at The Long Beach Playhouse, with the highlight performing on stage with Placido Domingo in LA OPERA’s world premiers Il Postino.

Now back on track in New York since the spring of 2012 with the focus on theater,. Steven has taken opportunities to hone his skills with director Sam Gold and noted playwrights Will Eno and Annie Baker.  Additionally, he had several play readings with the writers collective, ‘Playsmiths.’ His short plays Breeders Cup and Genius were produced through Love Creek Productions with whom he also performed in such comedy classics as Beyond Therapy and America the Beautiful. His short A Year of Mondays was performed at The Manhattan Theater Club’s creative space. His latest play Ricky's Mister was a 2014 semi-finalist for Chicago's Vittum Prize for best new play.

While the two men bond over military service and shared teenage strife, the staff and Kiel's awaiting angel father prepare Kiel for the end and struggle to keep the friendship professional. Their days-long relationship allows Kiel to finally experience trust and true earthly love before dying, and facilitates Ernie's healing from the recent loss of his partner to a brain tumor.
