Pamela Winslow Kashani
Co-Founder Apples and Oranges

Drawing from over thirty-five years of professional experience as a performer, producer, writer, composer, mentor and co-founder of Apples and Oranges Pamela is poised to offer a fresh creative perspective to XR. As an actor Pamela created such roles as Ensign McKnight on Star Trek: The Next Generation and the original Rapunzel in Into the Woods on Broadway. Also on Broadway Pamela played Cinderella in Into the Woods, Lucille in Meet Me in St. Louis and Babette (the feather duster) in Beauty and the Beast, and appeared in several films including Steal Big, Steal Little, Emma and No One Called Ahead. She made her VR acting debut as Hera in Finding Pandora X, winning Best Immersive Experience at both the Venice International Film festival and SXSW. She brought her own musical, Winter Lights, to VR and the Discovery Cube stage playing QED, a role she co-created as composer and lyricist. As a producer Pamela won a Drama Desk Award for the Broadway revival of Hair in 2009, in 2010 gained Drama Desk, an Outer Critic’s Circle and Tony Award for the Best Musical Memphis and co-produced the four-time Tony winner An American in Paris. She is inspired to explore the myriad possibilities of theatrical entertainment in XR.
