EVVY33 Cutler Majestic Hosts
Michelle Martinelli is a junior BFA Musical Theatre Major from San Jose, California. On campus, she is a sister of the professional sorority Kappa Gamma Chi, an executive producer of the Musical Theatre Society, and has performed in productions with Emerson Stage, Musical Theatre Society, Mercutio Troupe, and Rareworks. Off campus, she has performed with the American Repertory Theater at Harvard as well as the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company. As a past EVVY nominee, she is thrilled to again be a part of this special evening.
Matthew Newman is hard to capture with words. It typically takes a net, six platters of cheese, and a great deal of preparation. A Junior Writing for Television/Film major, this tall drink of water was once described as “the kind of man with whom, in no certain terms, would I trust my kids.” Matthew performs stand up comedy, is a member of EVVY award winning sketch comedy troupe “Jimmy’s Traveling All-Stars,” and was sent home in Kindergarten for making jokes on stage during a performance of “Johnny Appleseed” for a local nursing home. He was playing the non-speaking role of “tree.” Matt would like to thank men in comedy for reminding him it doesn’t always have to be a “Girls Club,” his mother Janice Newman for always being by his side (in direct conflict with his restraining order), and all the friends and family that have gotten him to where he is today: Single. Most importantly he is thankful for the opportunity to host this amazing award show with Michelle Martinelli. He can’t wait to sweat beside her while she steals the entire show. EVVYs 33. IT’S ON.
