  • Valerie diLorenzo

    Valerie diLorenzo, a native New Yorker and Sag Harbor resident, is always thrilled to return to Guild Hall; audiences may remember her from the Jerry Herman and Kander & Ebb revues.   She is especially thrilled to be reuniting with her longtime pals and colleagues tonight, who all know each other from Westchester theatre days.  Valerie most recently originated the role of Elizabeth and Madame Bertin in the reading of the new musical Unlikely Allies (by Martin Rabbett), alongside Mr. Richard Chamberlin and Ms. Cowan.  She also originated the roles of: Texas Guinan in Jenny & Me - The History of Sardi’s at the York Theatre/NYC; the role of Ginger in And I Always Will, a new play by Diana Canova at the Westport Playhouse and The Mother in the musical, ECO (by Jenna Mate) here at Guild Hall and NYMF. 

    An award-winning vocalist, Valerie’s one-woman shows have been defined as “…a seamless venture of magic in the making.”  Her voice and showmanship have been critically acclaimed for presenting interesting and exciting musical events that have played many NYC and East Coast venues including at The Laurie Beechman Theatre, The Metropolitan Room, The Triad, Judy's, Tatou, Don't Tell Mama's, The Duplex, The Iridium, Mohonk Mountain House, Caramoor Center for the Arts, Odettes and Frangelica’s (PA), The Broward Theatre and Aventura Arts and Cultural Center (FL). 

    Valerie is also a proud card-carrying remember of the Actors Equity Association - favorite theatrical credits include: Rose in Gypsy, Mrs. Johnstone in Bloodbrothers, Sheila in A Chorus Line, Nancy in Oliver!, Miss Hannigan in Annie, Stella Deems in Follies, Marta in Company, Miss Mona in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Sweet Sue in Sugar, and Bunny in The House of Blue Leaves.

    No stranger to the stages of the East End, Valerie has brought the Great American Songbook to the stages of the Southampton Arts Center, The Suffolk Theatre, Westhampton Beach PAC, Westhampton Beach Gazebo, and Agawam Park, among others.
