About Your Host

Gretchen Burke has been dabbling in the entertainment industry since she was very young. She graduated with a double major in Arts Management and Theatre from SUNY Purchase College in 2016 in New York. Shortly after, she began working in the mailroom as a floater at William Morris Endeavor in the New York office. After six months, she landed the desk of Jonathan Lomma (literary theatre agent) where she stayed for two years. She decided to make the switch to Los Angeles in the Fall of 2019 and began working under David Mcilvain (co-head of literary at Brillstein). She has been hustling on his desk ever since and is excited by anything musical theatre related, documentaries and anything signifying these trying times we are currently living in.
