Born and raised in Hershey, PA, Lynn Spector is passionate about musical theatre and its future. In addition to the many roles she has held on productions, she has been published in the journal Studies in Musical Theatre, worked in the costume shop at the Juilliard School, for costume designer William Ivey Long, and on magician David Blaine’s world tour.
Lynn gravitates towards rhythmic dialogue (a byproduct of years of tap dancing) and clever lyrics (a byproduct of her father’s parodies). She believes that after Stephen Sondheim, Billy Joel is the most influential composer/lyricist on modern musical theatre. Right now her favorite musicals include Guys and Dolls, Side Show, American Idiot, The Scottsboro Boys, and (for sentimental reasons) Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. (…and 42nd Street.)
