Theater Director

Alexis has been directing and developing plays for over a decade in cities all over the country. 

Her recent credits include the World Premiere of Bekah Brunstetter's HEY BROTHER, and Neil Labute's FAT PIG at the Hudson Theater.  The LA Times called the show, “[a] revival that packs an unexpectedly emotional wallop” and said Jacknow’s direction, “earns instant credibility from the pitch-perfect opening scene”.

This spring, she directed the World Premiere of A WOLF'S MOTHER for the M.F.A. Playwrighting Program at UCLA where she is on faculty as a Lecturer.  

Her production of L.A. Theatre Works' National Tour of SEVEN, is currently playing twenty-seven venues across the country through 2020.

Alexis is a proud member of SDC and the IAMA Theatre Company.
