Letty Ferrer was born into a noble theatrical family: her parents were Uta Hagen and José Ferrer. Her stage debut was at the age of four with her parents and Paul Robeson in the Theater Guild production of OTHELLO. A few years later she studied with Herbert Berghof at the HB Studio on 23d street in New York City. Her first assignment from Herbert was “Wendy” in PETER PAN.
Her early credits also include appearing in José Ferrer’s historic version of CYRANO DE BERGERAC. After high school, she spent several years working in regional and summer stock, which included the Colorado, Oregon and Florida Shakespeare Festivals, as well as a season in Stratford, Connecticut. She then traveled to Europe and trained at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA). She returned to the USA to be part of the company of the national tour of Arthur Miller’s AFTER THE FALL. Following this she returned for another two seasons in Stratford, CT.
Letty spent several years devoted to her family – raising her daughter Teresa. She continued to study and work at HB Studio, appearing in a number of productions there including with Marjorie Sigley (Siggy) and later joined the staff. She has been a member of The Workshop Theater, appearing in many productions over the last several years; including Charles E Gerber’s THE WILL-A-THON. She made her musical debut in a Lab Production of 70 GIRLS 70 in the fall of 2016 at HB Studio.
Letty is proud to continue her association with HB Studio where she is the official Studio Historian and Hagen Legacy Chair. She is also proud leader of UtaHagen.com
