Penn Alumni You Should Know About Vol. 18


Vanessa Bayer (C’04, Bloomers) gave some sound advice to Drake recently. That’s all we’ll say…



The prolifically talented Gabriel Mann (C’95, Off The Beat) recently finished composing music for Sundance show “Rectify”. Check out a great interview with Mann about scoring TV shows here.




Did you catch Elie Landau (C’94) on the Tony stage?  Elie is a part of the winning 101 Productions team that produced the Broadway hit Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris. Congrats on a fabulous production!



If you’re a Los Angelino you know that the Hollywood Bowl is a big deal.  And it’s now an even bigger deal for musical sensation and Penntertainment favorite Jonah Platt (C’08, Off the Beat).  He will be performing as “Woof” in this summer’s big Hollywood Bowl musical “Hair”  on August 1, 2 and 3.  Check out the very popular and NSFW “Sodomy” song he’ll be singing below (minute 1:00).  Can’t wait to see him live at the Bowl!  Go Jonah!

What People Are Saying

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
