Actor, Singer, Storyteller
Theatres may be closed right now, but I'm still making music. Check out some fun projects here!
Looking for a little fun and frivolity as you social distance? Good news! I am directing Siren & Sailor Co.'s first virtual Bard & Booze reading of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Our talented cast guides you through Shakespeare's tale of love, sex, and fairies, set to a fast-paced drinking game. Click HERE for more information and get yourself that Zoom link!
I am set to sing with Seth Bisen-Hersh in his upcoming Virtual Singer Showcase. More details to follow!
Before COVID19 turned our world upside down, I got to sing some tues from Company, Passion, ...Forum, and MANY MORE in Theater 2020's production of SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM. I'm so grateful for the experience and to have made some gorgeous music with our wonderful cast of 8.
Welcome to my site!
I am a New York based actor and artist always looking to explore, to learn, and to connect - on stage, on set, and in life. Born into a Hungarian-American family (which accounts for the odd silent "j" in my last name), my earliest memories involved watching my favorite movies over and over until I could act out scenes from them perfectly. I would sing and I would write my own stories to share with my family. And twenty-some years later not too much has changed...I still love good stories and I love to help tell them.
I've been seen on the New York stage in Sweeney Todd (Innovative Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actor), John & Jen, Titus Andronicus, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and many others. Favorite Regional Credits include the regional premiere of Ghost the Musical (Broadway World nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Musical), Dogfight (Broadway World nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Musical), and Fiorello! I also have had the honor of singing at Radio City Music Hall.
Apart from that, I am a soccer fan and player, a roller coaster enthusiast, a traveler, an avid reader, comic book nerd, and musician. I hold a degree in Vocal Performance from NYU Steinhardt, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude, am a co-founder of Siren & Sailor Theatre Co., LLC and am a proud member of Actors' Equity. I can't wait for what's next!
Enjoy the site and thanks for visiting!
"Krajnyak sings with assurance and has a sweet rock voice that can register sincerity and emotion, but it is in his watchful, physical, discerning performance that he grabs your attention and respect." - Neal Zoren, Phindie
"...cleverly portrayed by Zack Krajnyak." - Alex Hajjar, Brooklyn Spectator
Zack Krajnyak offers an endearing performance...his voice rings clean and clear" - Neal Zoren, DC Metro
"Catherine Purcell and Zack Krajnyak as lovers Johanna and Anthony were wonderful, adeptly showing why romances worth dying for make for the most beautiful stories. With the bounce in their steps of young lovers and the beautiful voices that would make anyone swoon, they were ideal for the roles." - Kristen Morale, BroadwayWorld
