Laurel Andersen (they/them) is an NYC-based queer and nonbinary actor, playwright, and sometimes-songwriter. 

Originally from the Los Angeles area (they grew up in the South Bay!), Laurel's work (both regionally and with young NYC theatre companies!)  encompasses both reimaginings/repurposings of classical texts (often to center women and queer people), & the development of new work. As an actor, Laurel is trained in both classical and musical theatre; they play guitar, ukulele, some piano, and a mean egg shaker. They are a proud resident artist at the Fled Collective (where they're a recurring player in the SERIALS program); Match: Lit, and the Drunk Texts (formerly Drunk Restoration Comedy).

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.)
