Meet 'Wicked' Actress Kara Lindsay with These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Kara Lindsay is a Broadway veteran who just returned to the role of Glinda in Wicked for the Los Angeles stop on the national tour!

The 33-year-old actress made her Broadway debut in 2012 while originating the role of Katherine in Newsies. She then joined the cast of Wicked on Broadway for several years and also starred in the musical Beautiful.

We caught up with Kara to learn more about her. Check out these 10 Fun Facts!

  • 1. I’m from Rochester, NY and therefore I love Wegmans. My mom works at the head office in Rochester, NY. She’s worked there for 44 years!
  • 2. The first musical I ever did was Pirates of Penzance at Greece Athena Middle School. I was a tapping cop… “Tarantara.” I had the time of my life!
  • 3. I used to dream of being a figure skater even though I had never really stepped foot on ice. I worshiped Kristi Yamaguchi. My mother (who is a brilliant seamstress) would make me little figure skating costumes so that I could “mimic” the routines in my living room very badly and feel like an Olympic skater. What a good mom.
  • 4. My sister and I have an obsession with Justin Timberlake. We just saw his Man of the Woods concert in October!
  • 5. My family used to have Euchre tournaments every year during Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a card game. They’ve brought back that tradition in the past year or so. [My husband] Kevin and I have been brushing up on our card playing skills with Randy Glass and Eduardo Castro on the Disney Cruise so hopefully we can keep up with my competitive family members!

Sting & Trudie Styler Visit Broadway's 'Newsies'!

Sting and his wife Trudie Styler sandwich in Newsies star Jeremy Jordan following a performance of the hit Broadway show last weekend in New York City.

Newsies, based on the 1992 Disney musical movie starring Christian Bale, is loosely based on the true story of the Newsboy Strike of 1899. The show features the popular songs “Seize the Day” and “King of New York,” as well as some brand new ones for the stage!

JJ checked out the show this week and we loved it! Jeremy, who takes on the Christian Bale role of Jack Kelly, gives a star-making performance and the rest of the cast is excellent. Check out some production stills below.

Make sure to get tickets to the show now before they sell out. The show is currently scheduled to close on August 19 after a limited run.

The Newsies original cast recording is now available on iTunes and will hit stores on May 15 with a few bonus tracks!
