The dy­namic team at Abrams Artists Agency’s New York of­fice, the­atri­cal depart­ment, have long nur­tured ris­ing talent and helped over­see the ca­reers of young stars in­clud­ing Iain Ar­mitage (“Young Shel­don”), Sophia Lil­lis (“Sharp Ob­jects”), Ryan Ja­maal Swain (“Pose”) and Hai­ley Kil­gore (“Once on This Is­land”). Other clients on a hot streak in­clude Jaden Michael (“Vam­pires vs. The Bronx”); Milly Shapiro (“Hered­i­tary”); Sha­hadi Joseph (Jon Favreau’s “The Lion King,” Uni­ver­sal’s Jor­dan Peele pic “Us”); Jahi Win­ston (the up­com­ing “The Up­side” with Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart); Ben Ross (ti­tle role in touring “Dear Evan Hansen”); Fred Hechinger (just cast op­po­site Amy Adams in Fox’s “Woman in the Win­dow”); and Parker Se­vak (co-stars op­po­site Mag­gie Gyl­len­haal in Sun­dance hit “The Kinder­garten Teacher”). “Our un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment is to cu­rate, nur­ture and drive suc­cess­ful, sus­tain­able ca­reers that will grow along­side th­ese bril­liant young artists,” says Kress. Adds Pil­let: “The talent level and work ethic I’ve seen in our re­mark­able young ac­tors is truly in­spir­ing.”
