Ayelet is an San Francisco-based actor and singer who performs on stages in NYC, LA, and throughout the Bay Area. She recently originated the role of Yocheved in the world premiere of Stephen Schwartz's The Prince of Egypt and played Connie in The Effect at SF Playhouse. This summer she'll return to SF Playhouse to play Freida in Sunday in the Park with George (July 5 - Sept 8).
"In particular, Firstenberg’s Connie... is a revelation. In a complex blend of traits rarely seen in female characters on our stages, she combines sass, smarts and playfulness, mixing game-for-anything assurance with the kind of perspective and humility that makes it sound as if the subtext to all her lines is “... but it’s not a big deal.” Firstenberg plays her with such understatement, so scoured of any showiness, that you lean in to the show with greater tenderness toward it." - Lily Janiak, SF Gate
"As Moses' birth mother, Yocheved, Ayelet Firstenberg trills among semitones with a force that could bore bach millennia." - Lily Janiak, SF Gate
