We are Thespians Blog – Jennifer Reischel

Jennifer Reischel is a modern day thespian with an unashamed passion for anything, everything and anyone artistic. Originally following her first love (the piano) she ended up training in musical theatre at drama school (aka boot camp) and after exploring different performing avenues, somehow found herself working in Risk Management (yes, a random detour indeed!) whilst pursuing theatre criticism and having a book published.
