Lizzie Markson is committed to telling stories with as much truth and heart as possible. She is passionate about moving people-- bringing them back in touch with their humanity and their heart 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, and before coming to the city, 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, Danielle LaPorte, Pema Chödrön, and Joni Mitchell.

"LIZZIE MARKSON, AS DIANA, IS A STANDOUT THROUGHOUT THE SHOW, INCLUDING THE SONG "NOTHING." BUT IT WAS HER RENDITION OF "WHAT I DID FOR LOVE" THAT BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN AT THE PERFORMANCE I ATTENDED."
-Amanda Nelson, The Roanoke Times
"FROM THE MOMENT SOPHIE BEGAN TO SING, SHE MESMERIZED THE AUDIENCE WITH HER ANGELIC VOICE AND LEFT THE CROWD EXCITED FOR MORE."
-Tori Hudson, The Daily Wildcat
"AS SOPHIE, LIZZIE MARKSON IS THE BEST ACTRESS I HAVE EVER SEEN IN THE ROLE, AND SHE CREATES CLEAR RELATIONSHIPS WITH ALL HER CO-STARS INCLUDING THE ATTRACTIVE AND TALENTED DUSTIN HARRIS SMITH AS FIANCE SKY, WITH WHOM SHE SHARES A HIGH-POWERED "LAY ALL YOUR LOVE ON ME."
-David Edward Hughes, Talkin' Broadway
