WHERE IT ALL BEGAN....
Halle first began producing while in college at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. It was there that she produced, directed, and starred in "The Colored Museum" by George C. Wolfe. Little did she know that 7 years later, she would produce "The 30th Anniversary of The Colored Museum" in New York City. Halle self produced a one woman show, "A Toast to Broadway" in her hometown of Cleveland, OH before making her way to the Big Apple and landing on stage of the Great White Way. While on hiatus from a successful performing career, Halle assistant stage managed The Classical Theatre of Harlem's production of "The Tempest". This led to Production Stage Managing at various New York City theatre companies including: National Black Theatre, The Lark, Hi-ARTS, The Public Theater, The New Black Fest, Apollo, and Harlem Arts Festival.
To deepen her understanding of the all-encompassing art of theatre producing, Halle took an internship at the General Management office of HAMILTON: An American Musical. She successfully ran the infamous Ham4Ham lottery and managed the Snapchat and Twitter accounts for @Hamilchat (combined 35K followers).

Halle joined the Producer Development & Mentorship Program at TRU (Theater Resources Unlimited), gaining hands on experience under the expert guidance of Tony Award winning Producers. Halle made her NYC producing debut with an Industry Reading of TO DANCE, a new musical directed by Broadway's Jeff Whiting (Hairspray, The Producers, Scottsboro Boys). In April 2016, Halle joined T. Schreiber Theatre as their Producing Director, successfully mounting 4 theatre productions. During her time at T. Schreiber, she increased profit margins, diversified artistic programming, and launched new and profitable marketing campaigns. It was at T. Schreiber that Halle fell in love with the art of producing; from auditioning to opening night, she finds joy in the nurturing, developing and presenting art.
Halle's greatest passion is producing social justice theatre pieces. She has independently produced several shows, including the New York Times critics pick, "3/FIFTHS", an interactive carnival and cabaret about race and priviledge in America. Additionally, Halle is the Performance Coordinator for Joe's Pub at The Public Theatre where she has worked on such productions as BONE HILL and JOMAMA JONES. She has worked with The Public's Mobile Unit and Mightee Shero Productions bringing theater to prisons, homeless shelters, and community centers throughout New York's boroughs.
Though still early in her producing career, Halle hopes to become an influential arts leader and architect of the American Theater.
