Fern’s first foray into theater was as an actor in THE DETECTIVE STORY (1995), an off-Broadway showcase. She played “The Woman.” (She was perfectly cast.) After graduating from the Commercial Theatre Institute under the direction of Fred Vogel, she joined the producing team of the Lucille Lortel Award-winning Off-Broadway production of SHAKESPEARE’S ROMEO & JULIET (1998) as Associate Producer. Fred Vogel, Roger Ghindi and Bruce Lazarus were producers. Fern produced HEART OF THE CITY (2009) featuring Obie Award winner Marcia Jean Kurtz and Oscar winner Melissa Leo. 

She was co-producer on ONE FUNNY MOTHER,  a hilarious one-woman show about motherhood starring comedian Dena Blizzard which played at New World Stages.
