David Rieth moved to New York City after studying at the National Theater Institute at the O’Neill Theater Center, and the University of Virginia School of Drama. David married his co-star from his first Off-Off Broadway play – an epic East Village production about pedigree pugs and an art gallery heist.
A member of the Artpark Repetrory Theater, the South Carolina Summer Rep, and The Improv Olympics, David has performed at Cafe Bustello, CBGBs, and ABC No Rio. He’s frequently the musical emcee for “WORD: The Storytelling Show” on Avenue A in New York City, and he stars as a hip-hop rapper’s shrink in the film, “Verses at Work.”
David recently played Eddie in “Lost in Yonkers,” and James Lingk in “Glengarry Glen Ross” —both the Nutley Little Theater. David and his wife, Janet, front the original power pop band, The Bloomingfields.
