Jacqueline Romeo has published articles in Toronto Slavic Quarterly and Theatre History Studies, and has just completed her dissertation entitled, Comic Coolie: Charles T. Parsloe and Nineteenth-Century Frontier Melodrama. Her creative interests include intercultural performance with artists from Bali and China, the most recent of which was Caliban Remembers: a Balinese Tempest at New York's La Mama Experimental Theatre Club.
She has directed several productions in Boston, including These Four Walls, an original play based on the life of Charles Gibson for the Gibson House Museum and the Boston Athenaeum, and the area premiere of Abla Faroud's Game of Patience at the Actor's Workshop. She wrote and directed Scandal on the Stage: Banned Theatre in Boston at the Old South Meeting House, and was also involved in staging several of Dante's cantos for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's season of "Dante at the Gardner." Dr. Romeo teaches courses in world and American drama, intercultural performance, popular entertainment, and American frontier history.
