Born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs, Rebecca "Bex" Odorisio came to New York at the age of eighteen to pursue her dramatic education. She studied at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts (Playwrights Horizons Theater School) and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Since earning her B.F.A., she has worked her away across a wide theatrical spectrum, performing everything from Shakespeare to Sondheim to Strayhorn.
A facile and versatile performer, Rebecca places equal emphasis on musical, comedic, and dramatic pursuits. She is the recipient of the 2015 and 2016 Ben Tucker Jazz Award and the 2016 Johnny Mercer Award from the American Traditions Competition, the 2015 All-Star Champion of the Cabaret Showdown, a founding member of the theater company Island Shakespeare, and one half of the fledgling musical duo "Teeny and the Tree."
Rebecca lives in Manhattan with her handsome pitbull terrier, Gusto.
