"Member Moments" is where the St. Pete Arts Alliance's Board of Directors goes out into the arts community to have one on one interviews with our Arts Business Partner Members. These video interviews will allow viewers insight into what makes the work of that artist so amazing and how they view the needs of the art community and the way in which SPAA responds to those needs.
Meet Jan Neuberger, Actor and Playwright and SPAA Board Member & Actress, Angela Bond Markus.
“I met my friend, Jan Neuberger about seven years ago when she and her husband moved to St. Petersburg from Connecticut. Jan is a fellow thespian (I am a professional actor) who spent many years in NYC and has many Broadway credits to her name. Since moving to our area, she has continued to perform at various professional theatres around Florida as well as in a couple of independent film projects, and has branched out to playwriting.
Her first full-length play, Way Beyond Water, has had several professional staged readings, the first of which was underwritten in part by an Individual Artist Grant from the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. That grant enabled her to pay her actors and director, a top priority for any professional artist.
In addition to her theatrical pursuits, Jan is active with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and FAST: Faith and Action for Strength Together and is also a member of St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church.
Jan is a great representative of St. Pete performing artists – talented, experienced, involved and well-rounded, and proud to be a member of the St. Pete Arts Alliance!”
