Jean-Pierre Barthelemy discovered a love for theatre while studying mathematics at City College. With a background in music and a love of literature, he set out to become a triple-threat actor. Along the way, his technical acumen and savvy business sense lead him to producing. Starting with the Harlem Repertory Theatre as their Marketing Director he learned from Keith Lee Grant, Artistic Director and founder of the Harlem Repertory Theatre Company. Shortly after a successful run or Dreamgirls and Dutchman, he assembled a team consisting of some of his favorite actors. That simple meeting developed into what is now The Seven Collective.
