"Lizzy Jutila expresses her rage in a stunning scene of raw physicality"
"She proves her emotional and athletic range in a solo moment of onstage explosion"
I was born and raised on a small farm in Barron, Wisconsin and now live in Brooklyn, NY.
I was born and raised on a small farm in Barron, Wisconsin and now live in Brooklyn, NY. My mother is a Filipina and my Father is a Finnish-American.
My early accomplishments include singing classical music at Canegie hall when I was 17, as well as being accepted to the Interlochen Arts Academy for theater the same year. I went on to earn my B.F.A in Actor Training at The Hartt School, University of Hartford.
In 2016, I originated the role of #00 in the Obie and Drama Desk Award winning (and Pulitzer nominated) play "The Wolves" by Sarah Delappe.
One of the most riveting scenes involves #00 (Lizzy Jutila), the taciturn goalkeeper, a high-functioning loner whose performance anxiety is so acute she throws up before each match. She stays late at one point and puts herself through a punishing solo practice routine that pushes the drama to a new peak of moving intensity, signaling a supple shift in mood.
