“A beautiful soprano with wickedly good comic timing” (DC Metro Theatre Arts), Suzanne Lane has been charming Washington DC audiences and critics alike with her unique versatility and powerful stage presence. Ms. Lane wrapped up the latest season with a pair of comic roles at Olney Theatre Center: Lucy Schmeeler in On the Town, for which she was named a “comic master” (DC Theatre Scene), and Cunegonde in Candide in Concert, singing the iconic aria, “Glitter and Be Gay.” Most recently, Ms. Lane’s performance of Johanna in REP Stage's production of Sweeney Todd was met with glowing reviews: “Lane's voice wraps around lyrical ‘Green Finch and Linnet Bird’ like a velvet glove” (DC Theatre Scene), and her “crystalline voice kills every high note” (The Baltimore Sun). A performer with uncommon range, Ms. Lane has been proving herself capable of carrying productions spanning from Theatre for Young Audiences to beloved classic operas. Recent highlights include Ms. Lane's widely acclaimed operatic debut as Norina in Don Pasquale, her heartwarming portrayal of a pre-verbal toddler in the children's musical, Knuffle Bunny, and her “glorious” interpretation of Hope in Urinetown.
