Holly Gould is a full time storyteller.
If she had a mission statement, it might read something like: "currently in curious pursuit of stories that excite and terrify her as an artist, particularly interested in early developmental workshops of new pieces (plays and musicals alike);
artistically focused on cultivating empathetic communities ."
She currently resides in NYC (born and raised in sunny LA)
and graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama in 2018.
And on a more personal self-exploration kind of level, she’s attempting to read more non-fiction and poetry, study NYC architecture, play the accordion, roller skate,
visit all the art museums, and write as much as she can when not consumed with basic survival.

Holly Gould strikes the right tone as Medium Alison, who heads to college, with “Changing My Major” to Joan... one of the musical’s highlights."

Holly joins the company of Wonder Boy at Musical Theatre Factory. She plays Peyton, a young scientist and the twin sister of the main character.
She's wanted to work at Musical Theatre Factory for a long time now and is grateful to be getting the opportunity to work on an exciting new piece of musical theatre interested in queer bodies and our personal relationships to gender and sexuality.
Holly joined the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab as a company member of The Suffragists: a brand new musical by Shaina Taub, directed by Leigh Silverman.
Members of the company include Jenn Colella (Tony Nomination for Come From Away), Philippa Soo (Tony Nomination for Hamilton), Emily Skinner, Bonnie Milligan and Nicolette Robinson.
This gorgeous new piece of theatre is truly life-changing and Holly could not be more thrilled to be involved in its development.
She also recently played the title character in a developmental reading of She's Gone a new play by Ezra Brain, produced by The Art Garage, an organization founded in 2018 that is committed to telling and producing trans stories for theatrical spaces. A joy to work on and she can't wait to see where the piece goes next.
In 2020, Holly will release her thus far untitled debut EP as a solo singer/songwriter.
It has been a long time in coming and is the culmination of years of work and writing with and around a community of incredibly inspiring human beings, for whom she is eternally grateful.
Her first single ("boohoo energy") will be released in April 2020 (just in time for her 24th birthday).
With a warm smile and a too-cool hat, Holly Gould makes Joan, Alison's first love, worth coming out for..."
