Is There Anything Tavi Can't Do? Teen Blogger Is Headed For Broadway

09 April 2014 by


We've said it before and we'll say it again, is there anything Tavi Gevinson can't do? Tavi founded her blog Style Rookie when she was 12, and then created her online magazine Rookie. But editor-in-chief is just one of her many titles, as her wikipedia page describes her as 'an American writer, magazine editor, actress and singer.'

Most 17-year-olds are struggling to get their heads around their A Levels but Tavi has written the Miley Cyrus cover story for US Elle, given celebrated TED talks, featured on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Media List TWICE and starred in Enough Said with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini.


Tavi can now add Broadway star onto her bulging CV, as last night she tweeted that she will star in Kenneth Lonergan’s 1996 play “This Is Our Youth.”  Gevinson will be playing the role of Jessica, an “anxiously insightful” fashion student in the play which follows three 'wealthy, articulate pot-smoking' teenagers on the Upper West Side in 1982.

It is described as: 'In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, “This Is Our Youth” follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era.' Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin will also star in the production. The play will open in Chicago, Tavi's hometown, and then have a 20-week run on Broadway. It will preview in New York in August and then run from September through to January.
