Gizel Jimenez, Triple Threat

Gizel Jimenez, Triple Threat

Growing up, Gizel Jimenez had no idea she would wind up a successful and celebrated actress.  Painfully shy, she couldn’t imagine performing in front of a live audience, much less making it a career.  But that all changed after Gizel got her BFA at the University of Florida’s New World School of the Arts.  She never looked back – and has worked ever since. Her credits include: Olivia, the teenager estranged from her mother, an undocumented immigrant in the acclaimed Off-Broadway show, ‘Miss You Like Hell.’  Gizel played the Mistress in ‘Evita’ and Rosalia in a National tour of ‘West Side Story.’  Regional Theater includes roles in ‘Oklahoma,’ ‘In The Heights.’  She’s also appeared on HBO’s ‘Divorce,’ ‘Law & Order SVU,’ and ‘The Tale of Two Jimmy Chins.’   This is an open, honest, emotional conversation with one helluva creative woman.
