Julie Marino is a playwright and producer living and working in New York City. Her play "Welcome to Paradise," a 2014 NPC semi-finalist, premiered in 2019 with a successful 10-week run at the Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea, Michigan, exceeding projections for attendance and ticket sales. Works in development include two comedies: the backstage door-slammer “Cathexis,” and a quasi-end-of-the-world comedy entitled ”No Pants On." Another ongoing project is Synesthesia Radio Theater, which offers epic dramatic stories in tidy little podcast-sized episodes. You can find an episode now on her website, juliemarino.nyc.
