Elizabeth Addison is a multi-hyphenate whose work exists at the intersection of Theatre Arts and Recovery. As a person in long term recovery, Elizabeth understands the power of the Arts and storytelling to heal and transform. Elizabeth has written three musicals about her recovery journey. Her first musical, “This is Treatment,” just had a sold out run at Northeastern University, and her third musical, “Chasing Grace,” was just accepted into the SheNYC Arts summer festival.

This mentorship program resulted in an opportunity for Elizabeth to observe the rehearsal process and the remounting of “Dear Evan Hansen” on Broadway. Elizabeth was just appointed The Artistic Director of New Play Development at 2nd Act, an organization whose mission is to change the way people and communities respond to the impact of substance use through theatre and drama therapy.
