ABOUT THE ARTISTS
L MORGAN LEE (she/her) is an award-winning actress and seeker of light. Her performance in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, A Strange Loop, garnered her an Obie award well as a Lucille Lortel nomination. That production gave L Morgan the distinction of being the first openly trans actress to originate a role in a Pulitzer Prize-winning piece of theater. Other credits include National and International tours, and projects with Long Wharf Theater, Musical Theatre Factory, Ars Nova, 5th Avenue Theater, and more. She is dedicated to being a part of work centering underrepresented voices on both stage and screen. “She needed a hero, so that’s what she became.” For more info: lmorganlee.com
