Lauren Sprague is Milo Davenport in An American In Paris

I grew up in Cincinnati, OH in a household that watched a lot of movie musicals (Lots of Marilyn Monroe, Doris Day and Shirley Jones). That was definitely where I got the bug for performing originally. 

I loved Gene Kelly and remember watching “An American In Paris” and ”Singin’ in the Rain” on repeat growing up. 

I love the quartet in Act two when Milo and Jerry are breaking up and Henri and Lise are trying to figure out their relationship. It’s a very complicated and layered situation that lends itself to a lot of depth and I particularly love the mash-up of the Gershwin tunes in the scene. 

Dream Roles? The Music Man (Marian), Crazy For You (Irene), The Producers (Ulla), Ragtime (Mother), The Sound of Music (Maria) My Fair Lady (Eliza) 

When not on stage I enjoy Running, Reading, and spending time with friends and family.
