KATE GOEHRING's work on- and -off Broadway and in National Tours includes playing Harper Pitt in Angels in America (Michael Mayer, director) for which she was recognized with an After Dark Award, a Miami Carbonell Award, a Leon Rabin Award, and a Jefferson Nomination; Matthew Lopez’s multi-Tony Award winning The Inheritance on Broadway (Stephen Daldry, director); Lady Bracknell in Central Park in The Importance of Being Earnest (New York Classical); Margaret White in Carrie, A Period Piece for Theatre Couture/PS-22 (with puppets by Basil Twist); and world premieres at Cherry Lane (Jack Serio, director) and Rattlestick.
Based in New York City today, Goehring started out in Chicago at the Goodman, Wisdom Bridge, Victory Gardens, Body Politic, Next, Court, Northlight, Stage Left, and Bailiwick. Regional world premieres include Tony Kushner’s SLAVS! directed by Lisa Peterson at the Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Humana Festival (winner, Best of the Fest); Emily Mann’s adaptation of The Cherry Orchard at the McCarter; and The Fairy Tale Lives of Russian Girls, at the Alliance with Eric Rosen. Other regional work spans Arena Stage, Dallas Theater Center, Intiman Playhouse, A Contemporary Theatre, Arizona Theatre Company, Cincinnati Playhouse, Milwaukee Repertory, Premiere Stages, five shows at the Huntington Theatre, and more.
Goehring’s first TV show was a blind date with Anthony Edwards on E.R. That didn’t pan out. She married Mark Wing Davies on The Untouchables but blew up in their car. On her first Law & Order, she botched kidnapping a pregnant woman, forcing the late, great Jerry Orbach to be the midwife. Strike three.
It’s been sunnier since, including winning Best Performance by an Actor at the 2023 New York Shorts International Film Festival; earning a Chicago Local Emmy nomination for her work in Jon Logan’s Moment of Rage; starring opposite David Jason in March in Windy City for the BBC; and co-starring on Gossip Girl, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel with Jane Lynch, The New Amsterdam with Ryan Eggold, and on Law & Orders/CI/SVU with Vincent D’Onofrio, Hugh Dancy, and Mehcad Brooks.
Other acting honors include a Seattle Footlights Award and a Broadway World/Raleigh Award for her work in productions of Collected Stories and Wit, respectively.
Goehring grew up on an island off of Mystic and counts Melville's Moby Dick and the Celtics/Lakers dynasty as driving forces in her evolution as an actor.
