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!
