Lorin's Episode: Associate Choreographers (#20)

Where are you from? I grew up in New Jersey and shuttled into NYC everyday as a child for ballet classes.

Broadway shows:
As a performer: Swing!, Fosse, Movin’ Out, Kiss Me Kate, Man of La Mancha, Wonderful Town, Apple Tree, Spamalot, A Chorus Line, Curtains, American Idiot, How to Succeed, Guys and Dolls
Bway as Associate Choreographer: American Idiot, Rigoletto (The Met), Hands On A Hardbody
Broadway Choreographer: Waiting For Godot, Queen of the Night, Scandalous, Hansel and Gretel-Live from Lincoln Center

How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? My first show was Swing! - I auditioned for it about 6 times…kept getting close, but as a 20 year old without any credits or union card, it took them a while to trust me with the role. It was the hardest dancing, I think to this date, I have ever executed. Ironically, the show was AGMA, so when my first Broadway  show closed, I had no Equity card. 

What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Gypsy of the Year is one of my favs because artists take risks and break out of their normal roles in shows as ensemble members totry on hats of soloists, writers, choreographers.

What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? It’s fascinating that over the years, craft and technique grow exponentially  and storytelling remains a priority but style is always shifting. Right now, the zeitgeist includes actor based, acted furniture moves instead of palettes and immersive theatrical experiences.

What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Using the arts as a means for change inspires me.  Re: Nick Kristof inviting mega stars to visit sex trafficking sights globally to gain readers, and The Gates Foundation utilizing famous people to spread the word and get the world to watch and learn.  Because of this, I founded artammo.org   -Artists Against Gun Violence, and in my spare time we create performance art flash mobs around the USA. We gathered Broadway performers as the organization’s first piece in Times Sq last year. 

If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… dead=Michael Bennett. alive =Tim Burton

If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… Hillary Clinton

To be successful in this business, it takes... complete dedication and a true love for the work.  To continue to work it takes constant growth of technique and performance quality.  That means ballet acting and singing classes, and taking risks as a performer to get out of your comfort zone and go for the scary role!

Tell us a secret. Most of my undergarments - panties, bras and pantyhose come from old Bway shows and have my last name or cast # in it. My boyfriend always giggles at the ‘Ms. Latarro’ sign in my bras.
