  • ABOUT ARI

    ​About Ari

    Ari grew up as a performer on the North Shore of Massachusetts, in the small town of Marblehead. She grew up learning from her Italian American family who raised her with the hard work and drive of small business owners. Her love for performing grew with a passion for “getting things done” which then bloomed into a love for the entertainment industry and producing.

    She is currently living a duel life "in front of" and “behind” the production table giving her a unique perspective she is extremely grateful for. She plans to continue on a fierce path with projects she believes in, on and off the stage. Ari is also a contemporary a cappella winning soloist and choreographer, Emerson College Graduate and an amateur cannoli connoisseur who resides in New York City.

    Currently...

    Ari is joining the producing team for the NYCLU & ACLU's annual benefit concert "Sing Out For Freedom" (formally Broadway Stands Up for Freedom) and serving as the Development Officer of Events for the NYCLU.

     

    Sing Out for Freedom will premiere virtually on Election Eve, November 2nd at 6:30pm.

    This Spring Ari started working as a Producer's Assistant on the upcoming Netflix movie musical Tick Tick...Boom! directed by Lin Manuel Miranda.

     

    Netflix's upcoming movie musical Tick, Tick… BOOM!, based on an off-Broadway play of the same name, will tell the ever-relatable story of Jon, a struggling playwright living in the Big Apple, wondering if he should give up on his big Broadway dreams. The pressure is amplified by his girlfriend, Susan, who's sick of waiting around while Jon fights to fulfill his dream. His best friend, Michael, who already traded his dreams for a corporate position in advertising, doesn't make it any easier. On top of it all, Jon is panicking over looming 30th birthday.
