Julie Benko is currently marching her band out on Broadway, where you can catch her as the alternate for Fanny Brice in Funny Girl every Thursday evening. She was named the 2022 Breakout Star for Theater in the New York Times, honored as one of 40 Under 40 by Crain's New York Business, hailed by CBS Mornings as "Broadway's breakout star,” and praised in several other national platforms extolling her performance. Other Broadway and touring credits include Fiddler on the Roof, Les Misérables, and Spring Awakening. At The York Theatre Company, Julie starred in yet another Jewish-themed Jule Styne revival: Bar Mitzvah Boy. She has appeared in leading roles in such shows as Once (Wilde Award, Best Actress in a Musical), The Fantasticks, Our Town, Rags, The Golem of Havana, …Spelling Bee, and more at such venues as Barrington Stage, TheatreWorks Silicon Valley, Weston Playhouse, and others. Her debut album Introducing Julie Benko and newest recording Hand in Hand (Club44 Records), a duo effort with her jazz-pianist spouse Jason Yeager, are now available wherever music is streaming. Julie is also a writer: Her first full-length play, The District, was named as a semifinalist at the Eugene O'Neill's National Theater Conference, and her first short film, “The Newlywed’s Guide to Physical Intimacy,” received accolades at film festivals across the globe.
