Actor & Teaching Artist
Andrea Rose Cardoni
As a Philadelphia-based artist, I am constantly inspired by the community around me. I recognize the value in the raw, honest lived experiences of others and the lessons we can all learn from them.
I am a committed collaborator and teaching artist in pursuit of finding truth through expression, storytelling, and exploration. As an actor with experience in film, commercial theatre, devised theatre and new work, I am deeply excited by exploring new territories and would love to collaborate with you!
"Her reactions are equally genuine and believable as she plays this flawed character who is facing a horrible situation[...]On a whole, Cardoni’s is a strong performance." - Ellen Wilson Dilks, Delco Culture Vultures
"Such an overtly political work risks becoming heavy-handed, but Cardoni head[s] off the worst potentialities by forging [a] rounded, imperfect individual. As [she] adjusts to her circumstances, Cardoni cycles through her range of anger: seething at times, raging at others."
- Christopher Munden, Phindie
"" I will dare to be bad so that I will be good. I am an artist. I am that I am." - Bill Fennelly, Actor's Creed

A Production with Allens Lane Theater
Directed by Scott R. Grumling and T. Patrick Ryan

Du, a right-to-life activist, and Keely, a pregnant rape victim, transcend their circumstances and the ideological issues that separate them. A Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama, Keely and Du is a mind-probing issue play with a gripping human face. Who is accountable? What is the extent of individual freedom? What are a rape victim’s rights? What are a Christian’s realities of procreation? The passionate and gripping story of these two women exists on the extreme edge of everyday reality.
