MacKenzie Grace Mauzy (born October 14, 1988) is an American actress.

Life and career[edit]

Mauzy was born in Greensboro, North Carolina. She played the role of Phoebe Forrester on CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful until December 2008 (she joined the cast on July 11, 2006).

She also played Lizzie Spaulding on the CBS soap Guiding Light from October 2000 to August 2002. She has also guest starred on CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: NY and NBC's Law & Order: SVU.

Before launching her acting career, Mauzy worked in New York, Virginia, and North Carolina in stage productions of classic plays such as A Christmas Carol, Snow White and Macbeth. In 1998, Mauzy won the Anna Wentworth award for "best child actress" for her role as Annie Warbucks in the production of Annie at Showtimers Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia.

In July 2008, MacKenzie was originally cast as Ilse in the 1st National Tour of the hit Broadway musical Spring Awakening. The role went to Steffi D (a Canadian Idol finalist) because MacKenzie turned it down in order to be in the Broadway musical, A Tale of Two Cities. Based on one of Charles Dickens most popular novels, A Tale of Two Cities is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and centers on the themes of injustice, vengeance and the redemptive power of love. Mauzy played The Seamstress in the musical, which was executive produced by Barbara Russell and Ron Sharpe.[2] The play, which cost $16 million to produce, closed on November 16, 2009 after 33 previews and 68 regular performances.

More recently, Mauzy joined the Broadway cast of Next to Normal, temporarily standing by for Jennifer Damiano as Natalie Goodman. She then succeeded Meghann Fahy as the standby for Natalie, with Fahy replacing Jennifer Damiano as the full-time Natalie. Mauzy stayed with the Broadway production (going on at various times) until the Broadway production closed on Sunday, January 16, 2011 after 21 previews and 733 regular performances.

Mackenzie Mauzy starred in the controversial new musical, White Noise, which is, in part, based on a real life white supremacist pop duo, Prussian Blue. White Noise is playing a limited run at the Royal George theater in Chicago, IL. The play is presented by Whoopi Goldberg and it opened on April 9, 2011 and received mixed reviews and audience feedback. It closed ahead of schedule on May 15, 2011.[3] It takes the audience on a frightening ride through the world of contemporary pop music with a special emphasis on "coded" racist lyrics. Learning materials have been prepared for the play by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Starting October 26, 2012, Mauzy had a featured role in Michael John LaChiusa's musical Giant at The Public Theater as Claire "Luz" Benedict.

In 2014, Mauzy was featured in the film Into the Woods as Rapunzel.[4]
