WHAT'S ON NOW
Laurel Andersen (they/them) is an NYC-based actor, singer, director, playwright, and sometimes-songwriter.
Originally from the Los Angeles area (they grew up in the South Bay!), Laurel's work with young NYC theatre companies (including Turn to Flesh Productions; Isle of Shoals; Match: Lit; Barefoot Shakespeare; Company of Fools; Infinite Variety Productions; the Tank; Everyday Inferno Theatre Company; Occupy Verona, etc) encompasses both reimaginings/repurposings of classical texts (often to center women and queer people), & the development of new work.
Laurel is a self-described genre nerd who loves fantasy and historical fiction -- especially when it is inclusive of queer people. They're also a huge sap for stories about friendship, love and the magic in everyday things. And cats. (Cats are definitely magical.)
Laurel's fantasy-romance play TAM LIN received a workshop production with Barefoot Shakespeare in October of 2022.
Laurel played Julie D'Aubigny in the January 2023 sold-out premiere run of LADIES' LADY, a new comedy musical, and will be featured in the Brooklyn cast recording, coming soon!
Artistic Associate at Match: Lit
Cast member (in rotating rep) of The Drunk Texts (formerly Drunk Restoration Comedy)
