Rose Burnett Bonczek

Director, Author, Consultant, Educator

 I'm a New York based theater practitioner who has directed in NYC, regional, international and educational theatre for many years.  As an educator, I  developed and supervised the BFA Acting Program at Brooklyn College, CUNY and in 2018 I received the Oscar Brockett Excellence in Teaching Theatre in Higher Education Award from the Association for Theater in Higher Education - currently, I coach and teach privately, and consult for organizations such as Atlantic Theater Company, Fordham and CNY Arts.


These days...


I'm proud to celebrate my 20th year as producing artistic director of Gi60 US  -  the 2024 festival, hosted by The Tank NYC is performed in May to great success; and our partners Gi60 UK will be performing a different set of plays on September 26 and 27 in Leeds, and Gi60 Houston will perform in July!  

  Listen to interview with Gi60 founder Steve Ansell and me on "Tanked! Podcast" with Tank NYC artistic director Meghan Finn:  

All the Classroom's a Stage: Applying Theater Principles to Teaching Techniques (co-author Michael Flanagan) is available for purchase  here.  A dynamic support tool for teachers of all subjects, the book will be exceptionally helpful as we transition from Zoom to in-person learning once again.

And check out our  interview with Patrick McAndrew, host of the podcast Relate -
