Elizabeth Weitzen is thrilled to unleash Beth, her new alter ego, on Mondo City. A San Francisco Bay Area Native, Elizabeth has a BFA in acting and costume design from NYU, where she studied with Stella Adler Studios, the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School, and Mary Overlie’s Viewpoints Intensive. You can also see Elizabeth in videos with her forthcoming sketch group Go Funny Yourself and in experimental Shakespeare productions with NYC theatre troupe The Dark Lady Players. In addition to wearing capes and tights – really, whenever possible – Elizabeth spends her days wooing her gorgeous (and aloof) cat Natasha, concocting culinary indulgences, re-reading Vonnegut, volunteering to fight breed-specific legislation (PinupsForPitbulls.com), and hunting for vintage shoes.
