Lizzie Markson is committed to telling stories with as much truth and heart as possible. She is passionate about putting people back in touch with their humanity and hearts in a powerful way only theatre can. She was born and raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, found her way to Elon University for her BFA in Musical Theatre, and now resides in NYC.
Right after graduating, she toured the continent for 11 months spreading pure joy as Sophie Sheridan in the National Farewell Tour of "MAMMA MIA!"
When she's not fulfilling her artistic-self, she can be found in the trees, in a book, in downward dog, or snuggling her cat. Her major life inspirations are Brené Brown, Cheryl Strayed, Elizabeth Gilbert, Pema Chödrön, and Joni Mitchell.
