Lindsey Noel Whiting is an actor specializing in physical storytelling, spectacle, and visceral emotional risk. Her full bodied/full hearted playfulness incorporates elements of clown, improv, and a strong visual awareness. She was a long-time collaborator with Redmoon Theatre, where she performed in large scale spectacle productions like Sink, Sank, Sunk and The Golden Truffle, as well as more intimate jewel box productions like The Cabinet and The Secret Language of Birds. She is also an Artistic Associate of Lookingglass Theatre, where she has performed in a number of productions such as Mr. & Mrs. Pennyworth, The Great Fire, and perhaps most notably, as the titular character in Lookingglass Alice in ten productions and seven different cities. Additionally, she is an Associate Artist with Actors Gymnasium where she has written, directed and performed in 15 circuses.
Lindsey has over 15 years of experience as a Teaching Artist helping students bring their bravest and truest selves to the stage. From summer camps with elementary school students to college workshops, she has enjoyed working with all manner of artists on physical performance, puppetry, and good old fashioned circus skills.
Like puppets AND circus?! Come take a class! Lindsey will be teaching a workshop with the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festive in March of 2024. More details can be found here!
Lindsey has several tours of Manual Cinema's Leonardo! A Wonderful Show About a Terrible Monster coming up this spring. It's a fun show for kids based on two books by Mo Willems and Lindsey gets to do a funny voice whilst working with the most charming puppet in history. Tour dates in Houston, Colorado Springs, and Singapore.
(Also, Lindsey appeared with her husband Samuel Taylor earlier this year on Shark Tank. Yes. That Shark Tank.)
