Alexis Jacknow – Director
Alexis Jacknow

 

Alexis Jacknow is an award winning, Los Angeles based filmmaker and stage director. She holds a B.F.A. with Honors in Acting and a Minor in History from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Since graduating, she has directed productions in cities all over the country ranging from new work to the classics.
A proud member of SDC, her recent credits include L.A. Theatre Works’ live recording of The Hound of the Baskervilles (Audie Award Best Audio Drama, Publisher Weekly’s Listen Up! Award); Batman and the Witch (IAMA Theatre Company); The Diary of Anne Frank (La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, BroadwayWorld Award Best Direction and Nomination Best Play); and Neil Labute’s Fat Pig at the Hudson Theatre, which included new material not seen before in the United States. The LA Times called the show, “[a] revival that packs an unexpectedly emotional wallop” and said Jacknow’s direction, “earns instant credibility from the pitch-perfect opening scene”. The production received an Ovation Recommendation, a BroadwayWorld Nomination for Best Play, and was a Stage Raw Top Ten Pick.
Alexis’ passion lies in developing new work, so it felt like kismet when she was hired to direct and develop the world premiere of Bekah Brunstetter’s play, Hey Brother, which went on to receive an Ovation Nomination for Best Original Playwrighting in 2015. As two New York transplants with theatre backgrounds, Bekah and Alexis became fast friends and are thrilled that their first collaboration behind the camera, Again, will be world premiering at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
