The Hells Kitchen Agency is a boutique talent agency in New York City, founded in 2017 on the proposition that the entertainment industry is wide enough for everyone.
Our outreach includes queer artists, performers of different nationalities and disabled performers. We believe Black Lives Matter, doing whatever we can to stop AAPI hate, and that we need to do more to help the Trans Community in America.
Developing talent at different levels of experience is a major focus for HKA, elevating artists on different paths to the next level of their careers. Our clients have performed internationally, on leading film and tv productions, and Broadway.
Clients have performed all over the world through various mediums. Broadway (Dear Evan Hansen, Moulin Rouge, Frozen, Jersey Boys, and many more) to touring productions, dozens of TV Shows, national commercial spots, hundreds of regional Theaters, traveling to all 7 continents among dozens of Cruise Ship opportunities, you can see our clients thriving everywhere! This year alone we’ve had clients book work on Netflix, HBO, ABC, NBC, CBS, Amazon Prime and Hulu. We look forward to opening (or breaking down) many more doors for our high quality roster of talent.
