Thank you for visiting my website!
My name is Jessica Fleischman and I am a freelance AEA stage and event manager based in New York City. Currently, I am on tour with Jersey Boys as an Assistant Stage Manager thru the end of June!
Originally from Ossining, New York (about 45 minutes north of the city), I was exposed to theatre at a young age and soon became insterested in how all the pieces of the puzzle magically fit together. During summers between grade school, I attended a community theatre camp, Yorktown Stage in Westchester County, but soon realized I didn't enjoy being onstage and shifted my interest to the tech side of theatre. Continuing through high school, I decided to continue pursuing theatre in college.
I am a proud graduate of Penn State University where I earned dual degrees in Stage Management (B.F.A.) and Telecommunications (B.A., TV Production/Management Track) which has only equipped me with a diverse platform for communication, an understanding of different production processes, as well as a more well-rounded management style. I strive to foster a fertile environment where all artists feel free to explore and create. Throughout college, I immersed myself in classes, stage crew jobs at the road house on campus, live TV webcasts, and overall campus life. I supplemented my formal education through professional work and internships during the summers, at theatres including Williamstown Theatre Festival, Second Stage Theatre, Wicked on Broadway, New York Musical Festival, and Amas Musical Theatre.
Beyond the theatre, I can be found cheering for Penn State Football, experimenting with makeup, cooking, baking, and playing with my pup.
