To say that L.R. was born in the business may be an overstatement - but not much.  Her first professional credit was on the sitcom, Gimme A Break at the tender age of 8 weeks. Following in the footsteps of her famous late grandmother, the ground-breaking comedienne, Totie Fields, L.R.’s career to date includes work Off-Broadway, and at regional theaters such as Steppenwolf, Goodspeed Opera House, Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Walnut Street Theatre, as well as numerous TV and film appearances, operas and dozens of commercials. Having worked coast to coast with some of the nation's most noted theatres, L.R. is now actively pursuing her career in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago.

On a more Classical note, L.R. appeared in the title role of Hansel in Hansel & Gretel, and The Child in L'Enfant et les Sotileges for the Opera Theatre of Weston. She was also in their productions of Die Fledermaus as Adele, The Magic Flute as Papagena, Amahl in Amahl and the Night Visitors and The Happy Prince as the Swallow. She'll be returning in January 2014 to play Mary Lennox in the regional premiere of Nolan Gasser and Carey Harrison’s new operatic version of The Secret Garden.


Offstage, L.R. enjoys old movies, art, reading, hot yoga, cooking and baking.  An avid horseback rider, trained by George Morris, Diane Carney, and Joe Forrest, L.R. is nationally ranked in both the Hunter and Jumper rings, a former champion junior rider,  and is a bona-fide "pony jockey". She always loves being able to spend time with her horses, Cinci and Phoenix! L.R. has contributed chapters to the book, AN APPLE A DAY published by Half Halt Press, had a column in SHOW CIRCUIT Magazine, in addition to various articles and artwork in the CHRONICLE OF THE HORSE and Towerheads. When not in production, she can also be found working on new plays and musicals with the REBIRTH THEATRE COMPANY, where she is a founding ensemble member. In her spare time you can find her teaching developmental music classes for children, giving voice lessons, teaching riding lessons, working as a personal trainer, or flying on a trapeze!


L.R. is a graduate of The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music, where she majored in Music and Vocal Performance and has been fortunate enough to study with renowned tenor, Neil Rosenshein.
