Victoria is a freelance director and has created two companies. Ensemble Atria and Food of Love.

Victoria is the founder and Artistic Director of the small nonprofit company Ensemble Atria, which has won several awards at the Midtown International Theatre Festival and The Shoebox Festival, including a win for Best Direction for Victoria’s direction of A Stranger Here Myself and Best Actress for Victoria’s acting in Frame 313. Now, Ensemble Atria’s main mission is to help playwrights develop new works.

Victoria is also the Founder and Artistic Director of Food of Love, a theatre company that brings you fine dining and Shakespeare in one unforgettable evening. Their first production was the Drama Desk-nominated Shake & Bake: Love’s Labour’s Lost Off-Broadway, in which she was also the movement director and played The Princess of France.

Next, Food of Love partnered with Third Rail Projects to produce Midsummer: a Banquet Off-Broadway. For that production, Victoria served as Creative Producer, Dramaturg, and played Titania and Hippolyta.

Mid lockdown, Food of Love put on Twelfth Night: Welcome to Our Table via livestream. This production raised over $5,000 for the Food Bank of New York City. Victoria directed and produced this production.

Victoria has also directed and choreographed at many regional theatres and around NYC. Favorites include No. 11 Productions, The Scranton Shakespeare Festival in Pennsylvania, Tantrum Theatre at Ohio University, and GREAT Theatre in Minnesota.
