Lisa Karlin

Lisa’s career began in her hometown of Overland Park, KS and has taken her to
Broadway and points in between. Most recently, Lisa ran away with the circus on the first
national tour of Pippin. She has had the pleasure of performing the role of Leading Player
over 100 times!

Lisa had her Broadway debut with the revival of Ragtime (Emma Goldman u/s). Other
Broadway credits include The Addams Family where she understudied the role of
Wednesday Addams. Some of her New York credits include the reading of Anastasia
with the legendary Angela Lansbury, as well as her creation of Sam Peterson in the
original American musical Empire. Lisa has had the pleasure of touring internationally
with the 25th Anniversary Tour of Cats playing Demeter and understudying Grizabella. In
addition, Lisa has worked extensively throughout regional theater, including The Paper
Mill Playhouse, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, Sacramento Music Circus, The MUNY,
Kansas City Starlight, The Shakespeare Theater Company, and many more! Her favorite
roles include Florence Vassy in Chess, Eva Peron in Evita, Velma Kelly in Chicago, and
Magenta in The Rocky Horror Show.

Lisa is incredibly grateful for Shirley, Brian, Kristi, and everyone in the Miller Marley
family. They provide a creative safe space and home for young artists in KC, and she will
be forever indebted to them for their love and support!
