Penn Alumni You Should Know About: Vol. 17


Christa Avampato (C’98) is finally premiering her play Sing After Storms in NYC! Written and directed by Christa herself, the play focuses on “mental illness, family dynamics, and the risks a man will take to keep his life together.” For dates and other information, check out the play’s website here. And for discounted tickets, click here. Hope to see you there!



Kevin Shen (WG’08) is hitting the stage in a big way.  Shen began his career in business (typical Wharton) but decided to stop living the financial life and become an actor. Lucky for Shen, things progressed quickly. The Wharton grad is currently producing and starring in Pulitzer Prize finalist Yellow Face, which premiered in London and will continue at the Royal National Theatre May 5th-24th. Way to follow your dreams, Kevin!

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."
