Born blocks away from The Met and raised in a small hamlet on the banks of The Hudson River, Francesca Choy-Kee grew up calling New York City home.  She pursued her BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and continued on to receive her MFA in Performance from the prestigious NYU Graduate Acting Program. 

Francesca has had the pleasure of performing at many of the countries leading regional theaters and has starred in several world premieres - most notably originating roles in The Long Wharf's production of "Agnes Under the Big Top" (Connecticut Critic's Circle Award for Best Actress in a Play) and The Huntington's production of "Luck of the Irish".  Her work in New York includes plays, readings and workshops most recently with The Cherry Lane, The Rattlestick, Ayad Akhtar's Pulitzer-Prize winning, Broadway play "Disgraced"and the first Broadway National Tour of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. 

She lives with her rescue pup and husband on the northern-most tip of Manhattan.
