Anna & Alan Ostroff
On-stage romance, drama, and comedy express the real-life passions of husband and wife theatre team Anna Roberts Ostroff and Alan Ostroff.
Early in their careers, Anna and Alan’s passion for performing led them to theater jobs all over the country. For a couple, acting in more than one or two plays together is uncommon, but Anna and Alan kept getting hired together by different theatres over the course of four years. It was as if fate was re-uniting them for additional productions.
After performing in shows all over the country, the couple developed their skills as producers, directors, and writers in New York City. In New York, Alan wrote and produced his first play, Tradition. The backstage Jewish comedy was one of the top grossing plays at the 2006 NYC International Fringe Festival. In their biggest triumph of all, Anna and Alan married in 2008, in Anna’s hometown, Annapolis, MD.
The producers now bring the Broadway and off-Broadway experience to local productions of many wonderful shows to come.
