Meet Lauren Cosio in ON YOUR FEET
Lauren plays Rebecca Fajardo, Gloria's younger sister in On Your Feet. She makes her Westchester Broadway Theatre debut!
I grew up in San Antonio, TX to a Mexican/Israeli family. My mom's family is from Mexico and my father was born in Israel but grew up in South America. The Latin culture was a big part of my upbringing. I grew up listening to a lot of Gloria Estefan!
When I was in the 6th grade, I was accidentally placed in choir. For years before that, I was a pianist and had no idea I could even sing. Once I started I couldn’t stop! A few months later, I was cast in my first musical Bye, Bye, Birdie and the rest was history. I guess you could say I got the theater bug!
I first saw this show in 2015 when it opened on Broadway along with a few more times before it closed. I grew up listening to Gloria Estefan, so this show always had a special place in my heart. I love how inspiring this show is. You see the struggles Gloria went through and how she never gave up. I also love the community it creates. Whether you are a part of the Latin community or not, this show will have you dancing and up on your feet by the end!
On Your Feet is definitely one of my favorite shows! My dream role will always be Christine in Phantom of the Opera. It was the first show I ever saw on Broadway and the reason I pursued this career!
I grew up with all different styles of music and definitely have an appreciating for everything. My favorite, however, is definitely some 80’s pop/rock!
I am a huge foodie, so when I’m not on stage, you can definitely find me trying all the new restaurants in NYC!
