in Jason Moore's musical/comedy, "Pitch Perfect" (Universal).

No stranger to television, Donohue has been a series regular on the sitcom pilots "Open Books" (CBS) and "Saving Jason" (CW) and has made memorable guest star appearances on "Ringer" (CW), "Perfect Couples" (NBC), "I Just Want My Pants Back" (MTV), "Royal Pains" (USA), "Hope & Faith" (ABC), "The Mindy Project" (FOX) and "The Carrie Diarires" (CW).

In 2007, Variety hailed Donohue as making "a powerful impression in a multifaceted role" for her starring role in the indie drama "Over the GW" (Seventh Art Releasing), that she produced with her fiancé and love of her life, critically acclaimed director, Nick Gaglia. After making its World Premiere at Slamdance Film Festival, "Over the GW" had a limited theatrical release and was used to promote social change when it was cited in a 2008 United States Congressional Hearing on Child Abuse and Deceptive Marketing by Residential Programs for Teens.
In 2008, Donohue made her off-Broadway debut at the prestigious Ensemble Studio Theatre playing a lead role in Taylor Mac's "Okay." It was this performance that Variety coined her "the unstoppable Kether Donohue!" Immediately following the successful run of "Okay," Donohue starred in the off-Broadway show "Blue Before Morning" by Kate McGovern at the DR2 Theatre (produced by terraNOVA Collective), once again to the praise of critics.
As a major in film at Fordham University, Donohue wrote, directed, and starred in her own short film, "The Babydaddy," an autobiographical narrative about the relationship between a 16-year-old girl and her ill Vietnam veteran father. "The Babydaddy" made its World Premiere at the HBO sponsored G.I. Film Festival in Washington D.C. in 2009. She also produced the short film, "Aaron Bacon," with Nick Gaglia.  

In 2009, Donohue also had the privilege of portraying a teenager exploited by the commercial sex industry in New York City in the emotional crime drama, "Boy Wonder," and teaming up once again with Nick Gaglia, starring in and producing "Altered States of Plaine," distributed by Turner Broadcasting System.
Donohue is also an accomplished voiceover actress. Her voice has been heard on several Fox Kids, Nickelodeon, and DVD animations as well as television and radio commercials/promos.
On the commercial front, she starred with Tiger Woods in a national Gillette commercial, was the "haircut" girl in the Sam Mendes directed iPhone 4 Facetime spot, and has been featured in major national ad campaigns for AT&T and Macy's, among others.
