Acting didn't always seem to be Yvonne's path, as her true love up until college was dance. She was a dance major in high school, but in her senior year she won a MACY AWARD for her acting performance in Jason Robert Brown's "Parade," and in that moment, dance became secondary to the thrill of stagecraft. 

Yvonne is one of the founders of Shrunken Shakespeare Company and will be taking on the role of Executive Director as of the 2017/2018 Season.

T.V. and Film credits: The Mysteries of Laura (NBC), Falling, Take Me With You, Sweet Thing.

Off-Broadway and Regional: 

The Sneeze (The Pearl Theatre Company), Firebird (LaMaMa), Gymnos (HERE Arts, NYIT Award), King Lear, Ira, What We Know, Midsummer and Two Gentlemen of Verona (Shrunken Shakespeare Company)  People on Fire, The Tarantino Variations, Below and Process (The Barrow Group Theatre Company), Pericles and The Hound of the Baskervilles (Shakespeare & Co), Midsummer and Love's Labour's Lost (Maryland Shakespeare), Henry V, The Tempest and The Merchant of Venice (Shakespeare Orange County), The Tempest (Colonial Theatre).  

Cone is a wonderful actress...her moments with Enrique Bravo, who plays Ferdinand, as their characters build their romance are enchanting.

The cast delivers touching performances and in a few cases, truly great work. Yvonne Cone’s Masha is full of yearning and desperately trying to hold onto the few moments that she has with her lover, her scenes...bristle with regret and heartbreak.
