"I love acting. It is so much more than real life." -Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorain Gray
Carly Polistina can literally not remember a time before she started acting. *Pause to try* Nope. Can't do it. Recently, Polistina performed in the Off-Broadway Workshop production of her original play Nosebleed: a "comedy" about hypotheticals, mail, and crazy loud sex. She also co-starred in Please Help, an award winning web series, and A Place for Ashes, an indie film coming out next month. Carly got her BFA in Acting from the University of Connecticut and spent a semester spent in London studying Shakespeare. In 2018, Polistina was nominated for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play for her work as Mary Warren in Connecticut Repertory Theatre's production of The Crucible. Prior to the pandemic, Polistina was a resident actor in Vulcan Theater Company wherein she was part of a production of The Scottish Play that closed right before the shut down. In other words, she would like to formerly apologize for starting the pandemic, but, boy-oh-boy isn't theatre powerful?
