is a Connecticut native and Manhattan actress, dresser, designer, and writer.
She holds her Bachelors Degree from Western Connecticut State University where she studied Theatrical Performance and Design. As she wears many different hats, Tara has earned and received a myriad of amazing opportunities both on and off stage since moving to New York in 2014.
She starred as Zoe Tiller in the new musical #LoveStory at the NYC Fringe Festival in 2015, reprising her role at The Green Room last February, and has also performed in many new, developing musicals such as Tonya and Nancy: The Rock Opera, The Most Miserable Christmas Tree, Dex! A Killer Musical, Facings, and more with a myriad of working professionals. Other favorite New York credits include Grease, I Love A Piano, and Almost, Maine.
Tara also spends her time as a freelance Wardrobe Supervisor and Dresser. Her Broadway credits include CATS, Pretty Woman, Hadestown, Moulin Rouge, and currently Mrs. Doubtfire at The Stephen Sondheim Theater. She has since become an active participant in fundraising for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids; having joined the casts of CATS and Pretty Woman on the last three volumes of Carols for a Cure, and performing at the Minskoff Theater and the New Amsterdam Theater for the 31st Annual Easter Bonnet Competition and the 29th Annual Gypsy of the Year Competition, respectively.
By weaving her dual careers together, Tara wrote a one-woman show entitled Seams & Songs chronologically recounting her time both on and off stage and how those experiences have shaped her career. It debuted in September of 2016 and has since been produced a total of three times.
Tara spent the last year creating her first television series, Under the Influence, which she wrote, produced, and starred in this past fall. The project, co-produced by Viridan Coast Studios, is currently in post-production and slated to hit the film festival circuit
later this year.
