Born and raised in Massachusetts, Lindsay Arienne Weiner spent her youth twirling in her kitchen and singing showtunes on Saturday mornings. She later moved to New York City to attend the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University where she studied acting.
Lindsay is currently the Resident Music Director and an Education Specialist at iTheatrics, a theater education consulting firm that adapts musicals into age-appropriate shows for middle school students to perform.
Lindsay's life in New York, although exciting, still left her wanting to see more of the world. She finally got her first chance in 2005 when she traveled to Israel on a Birthright trip. She then spent a semester studying abroad in Spain, using the time to immerse herself in the culture. Her most recent trip overseas in May 2008 took her on a spiritual journey to Poland where she reconnected with with her roots and was inspired to explore new ways of educating people about the Holocaust.
Since her Birthright trip, and through reinforcement received by her trip to Poland, Lindsay's core mission has been to find artistic ways to express her heritage that both move and motivate people to action as well as challenge their beliefs. Part of this mission has been actualized through Linday's participation in "Monologues," a spoken word show where solo artists recount stories about their Jewish identities and experiences with Israel. Lindsay also volunteers with DOROT and with Shifting Ground, a program designed to bring theater to patients at children’s hospitals.
When she's not working to transform the world, Lindsay can be found playing the piano, reading the newest Jodi Picoult book, or planning her next great adventure.
