Empty Stage


|Actor|Director|Writer|Voiceover Artist|

Lisa Datz is a bicoastal, critically acclaimed actor, director, writer, and voiceover artist. She grew up in the midwest, making a splash on Broadway and on the big screen at a young age. Over the pandemic, Lisa has used this time to hone her directing & writing skills, creating music videos with music producer Carson Rammelt of SIXFOOTFIVE Productions, and on her short film/proof of concept pilot LIFE OF RILEY, written & directed by Lisa, and produced by Datz a Wrap, LLC in association with Intent Entertainment. After a year long pandemic delay, it triumphantly received its red carpet premiere on Dec 11th, 2021 in Los Angeles. A former competitive figure skater and current equestrian, when Lisa's not acting & directing, you'll find her riding, skating, hip hop dancing, and traveling the globe, surrounded by her close family & friends.

It's nice to be back in person, isn't it?

Written and Directed by Lisa Datz

LIFE OF RILEY is a classic love story with a modern and surprising twist. It centers around Riley, an American woman haunted by her past as she falls in love with a successful Dominican architect, who bares his own scars from cultural bias; a seemingly innocent event threatens to pull apart the foundation of their relationship on their two year anniversary, in which things are not always as they seem.

"A multicultural love story in a complicated modern world."
