My face in an advertisement on the Path train and platforms

Quite a surprise to see my face on the NBC screens on the Path trains and platforms. It happened to me on my way to rehearsal this morning for the new Radiotheatre show that premieres this Friday. This weekend is already sold out but you can still get tickets for other shows. Wednesday May 17th is an especially good day to watch me perform as I am in 4 out of 5 of the stories being presented. Runs from May 12th till May 27th. For tickets:

My first Off-Broadway show CasablancaBox reviewed in New York Times

I am so lucky and proud to be part of “CasablancaBox”. Come out and see this piece. You’ll experience something you’ve never experienced before! The New York Times came to see it and they wrote a review.


Here’s the review in Broadway World. Check out the podcast from 8:42 onward. We’re mentioned in Playbill. They also say we’re one of the 15 Off-Broadway Shows Not to Miss Through April 15.

Exactly one year ago today I arrived in NYC!

Exactly one year ago today I moved from the Netherlands to New York City to work as an actor.  On March 16, 2016 I stepped out of a plane and into a new life in the United States of America.  It has been the best year of my life.  I have been involved in many wonderful projects in film, television, theater, commercials and voice over.  I have met a lot of inspirational people and learned valuable lessons about the acting industry.  In the last couple of months I became SAG-AFTRA eligible, played in a TV series, booked my first U.S. commercial and auditioned for several big television shows and feature films.

I am also thrilled to announce that I have been cast in two different theater productions.  You can see me and 16 other actors in Sara & Reid Farrington’s CasablancaBox and I will perform in Radiotheatre’s Edgar Allan Poe Festival.

For more info, please read my newsletter.

Thank you very much for your support!

Cast in “Duck” at International Human Rights Art Festival NYC

Before I share the news that I got cast in yet another play reading, I would like to say that it was exactly one year ago that I got my O1 artist visa.  The best thing that ever happened to me!  Without it I wouldn’t have had the life that I’m living now with all those wonderful people in it.  Thank you to all who have contributed to my visa application.  It was totally worth all the work and the long wait!

This year I am looking forward to continuing telling new stories by talented playwrights, with great directors and at the side of wonderful actors.

I am starting rehearsals tomorrow!  I got cast in a play reading as part of the International Human Rights Art Festival, at 5 pm, March 4, 2017 in the Dixon Place theater:

“Duck” is written by Tom Block. Please come and check this play about a former CIA operative out!

Photoshoot with Metin Oner and Jeiris Ferrer

What a pleasure to work with these talented and wonderful people: photographer Metin Oner and makeup artist Jeiris Ferrer! Thank you so much for the fun and very productive shoot that we had. We shot outdoors near Union Square, Manhattan. I am very happy with the results!

Rehearsals for reading “Shooter” @The WorkShop

Getting ready for the first rehearsal of the staged reading of Sam Graber’s new play “Shooter”. The play is about the very sensitivity and heavy subject of school shooter-massacres. The well-written play gives me chills and very mixed feelings. I am playing the role of county attorney Theresa. The staged reading will be on January 8th at 6pm and is free and open to the public. Please find the link with more info here. 


My first US commercial and first role in American TV Series!!!

I just found out that I not only booked my first US commercial (Jane Iredale makeup), that I’m going to shoot tomorrow,…but I also booked my first role in an American TV series (Mysteries at the Museum)! I’ll be shooting that later this week. Life’s crazy exciting! And all of that is happening in between the rehearsals for the Radiotheatre show that premieres next week! I have hardly time to sleep. But who needs sleep with the adrenaline rushing through your veins?!!! #AnnemarieHagenaarsActress

Special Christmas Shows coming up!

Special Christmas shows: Singer-songwriter Paulo Coelho and Actress Annemarie Hagenaars are both performing on Tuesday December 20th and Wednesday December 28th.christmasinnewyork4

Yesterday I sent out a Newsletter into the world. Please click here for the online version.

On Tuesday December 20th at 8:00pm Annemarie’s new show with Radiotheatre premieres at St. John’s Sanctuary on 81 Christopher street. She is on stage just minutes away from The Bitter End on Bleecker Street. We are thrilled to announce the serendipitous event that Paulo sings in the Bitter End on the same night right after the premiere. It is a fantastic opportunity to see us both perform.

The Radiotheatre show runs until about 9:20pm and then it’s only a short walk over to the Bitter End where Paulo starts at 10:30pm. If you can’t attend on the 20th you will have another chance on December 28th where once again we will both be performing on the same night.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
