Lauren Marcus is an American stage actress. She defined the leading roles of Patty Jenkins, the "frightfully nosey" cheerleader in Joe Iconis' musical, The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks,[1] and Hope Horrishall in Rich Espey's drama Hope's Arbor.[2] From November 2008 through January 2009, she starred as Jenny Vecharelli in the off-Broadway musical Rewrite.[3][4]

Gawker identified Marcus as the character "Janine" on the "Craig and Janine" video series.[5] The video series was subsequently transformed into a live show at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, Craig Stevens Guide to Making it On Broadway, in which Marcus starred alongside Tyler Maynard.[6]

Marcus starred in the Astoria Performing Arts Center's production of Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour in 2009, playing Mary Tillford.[7] Drama critic David Sheward, writing in Backstage, described Marcus in that role as "a devilish dynamo" and "utterly convincing."[8]

Marcus is a graduate of New Trier High School, New York University and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. She is currently based in New York City.
