After the success of We Are Here at Carnegie Hall, Maddie Burton is thrilled to be back and to be part of such a timely and meaningful event.
Maddie is the product of a K-12 Jewish education from Solomon Schechter (now known as the Leffell School). She went on to graduate from Northwestern University, earning her degree in Theatre and Neuroscience. Maddie served on the executive board of the Jewish Theatre Ensemble as the Artistic Director and the Director of Jewish Education, guiding the creation of faith-based performances. Her college experience culminated in a passion project entitled Oy Vey: A Self-Indulgent Cabaret.
Maddie has since been involved in the development of a number of new musicals (Safe Hands, The Angel Makers, Itchin' for an Itch) across NYC and was recognized for her vocal performance at the New York Theater Festival.
When she's not in the theater world, Maddie works at Weill Cornell Medicine's Center for Autism and the Developing Brain, assisting clinicians with diagnostic testing and therapeutic interventions for individuals on the autism spectrum. She is a strong believer in using the Jewish value of "Tikkun Olam" (Repairing the World) to combat all forms of hatred, bigotry, and discrimination.
