In the New York Times, Elisabeth Vincentelli wrote: "Give this girl a vehicle already! Zoë Winters shined as an efficient sports therapist in "Red Speedo," a peppily manipulative religious leader in "The Harvest" and a hot mess grouchily attending a silent retreat in "Small Mouth Sounds." While this team player strives in ensembles, her droll humor and Swiss-quality timing make her ready for a lead."
Zoë is familiar to New York audiences from her performances in WHITE NOISE at THE PUBLIC, THE LAST MATCH at ROUNDABOUT, THE HARVEST at LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater, Ars Nova's production of SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS at the Signature Theatre about which The New Yorker wrote "...the phenomenal Zoë Winters...plays her anguish from the inside," New York Theatre Workshop's RED SPEEDO, Lincoln Center’s SHOWS FOR DAYS, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park, Soho Rep’s Obie Award winning AN OCTOROON and NYTW's production of Caryl Churchill's LOVE AND INFORMATION at The Minetta Lane, for which she received rave reviews. Time Out declared "Winters...is one to watch out for - zesty, zany and vibrant, she completely reinvents herself with each new character. Give that gal a romantic comedy or an old-fashioned farce." When Ms. Winters created the role of “Bec” in Amy Herzog’s award winning 4000 MILES at Lincoln Center the New York Times said she was “excellent”; The New York Post called her “pitch perfect”; and Time Out described her “beautifully realized turns”. Ms. Winters’ other New York performances include the New York Times Critics' pick HATER at the Ohio Theatre; LOVE SONG at 59E59 Theaters; and a self-written one woman show SWIMMING LEGS. Ms. Winters has worked at some of the Country’s top regional theatres including Westport Country Playhouse, The Old Globe, Baltimore Center Stage, Alliance, Paper Mill Playhouse, Seattle Rep, Virginia Stage, Magic Theatre, and Merrimack Rep. TV audiences will recognize Ms. Winters from her roles on ELEMENTARY, LAW & ORDER, GOSSIP GIRL, ARMY WIVES and UGLY BETTY. Her film credits include the indie films GRAY DOG, IN THE FAMILY, UNDER and the Sundance short GIANT. She has received a Bay Area Critics Circle nomination and The Seattle Times’ Footlight Award for Outstanding Acting. Ms. Winters received her BFA from SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Acting where she was granted the Dean’s Award for Acting.
