Tiffany Nichole Greene is a director, leader, creator, storyteller, and aggressive explorer of the human condition as it relates to relationships and the injustices of this world. She holds an MFA in Acting from Brown University/Trinity Rep, where her hunger for a deeper involvement in story-building began.

While Tiffany works on a great variety of genres at regional theatres and universities across the nation, she is particularly dedicated to the continued development of new works and the play development process.

Tiffany is a Houston native who now splits her time between NYC and Dallas where she works with Dallas Theater Center on an ongoing basis as Regional Casting Director. 




I am fascinated with the conversation between non-verbal communication (behavior) and spoken text and how the two support, betray, and ultimately expose one another. I love language. And I love physical theatre. The two are like strange lovers.

New works and the classics must stay in dialogue with one another. When I say "the classics", I refer to classical works as well as twentieth century classics. 

I find new plays to be essential to the growth of theatre. With that being said, the presence of my face/soul/body/essence is of the utmost importance in the American Theatre's collection of great classics. A presence that challenges the "default" image of these great European/American plays.

New work is vital: new ideas, new perspectives, new voices that force theatre to keep evolving and stay present with and in conversation with the world we live in. My voice and perspective is one of many that depends on the space work provides for us. New plays allow us the unique privilege of deconstructing, reconstructing, reinventing, evolving, weaving in a new narrative, which in turn inspires us to go back and revisit the classics that inspired us to begin with.

It's important to revisit these plays that we think we know so well and infuse them with new knowledge, new perspective, new love, new ideas and allow the text to breathe through new lungs and see through fresh eyes that have witnessed evolution. Full circles. Forward motion. 

How do we communicate what we'd like to know...
