She created the roles of Reagan in "Bachelorette" (Second Stage Theater) and Lauren in "Circle Mirror Transformation" (Playwright's Horizons), which the CCRI Players are presenting Dec. 5 to 7 and 12 to 14 at the Liston Campus.
Chimo also has appeared on Broadway in "Harvey" opposite Jim Parsons and "Irena's Vow." She received the Clarence Derwent Award in 2011 for Most Promising Actress in New York and an OBIE and Drama Desk Awards for her work in "Circle Mirror Transformation."
Her television work includes "Orange is the New Black," "Black Box," "The Money" and guest starring roles on "Louie," "Royal Pains" and "The Good Wife."
