Though playing the comedic role of Phoebe D'Ysquith in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Lauren Worsham wows audiences and critics with her pure and glistening soprano, reflecting her training in both opera and theatre. Born in Austin, TX, she started performing at age eight, inspired by the likes of Barbra Streisand, Beverly Sills and Laura Benanti. After studying at Yale, she came to New York where, she told Playbill.com's Diva Talk column, her first showbiz job was as a line wrangler for Spamalot. Moving up from there, she has sung with the New York City Opera (Cunegonde in Candide), Goodspeed Opera House (Lili in Carnival!), City Center's Encores! series (Amy in Where's Charley?) and Carnegie Hall (Pitti-Sing in The Mikado). Worsham is also co-artistic director of The Coterie, a Manhattan opera company, and she somehow finds time to front the downtown indie-pop band Sky-Pony.
