Most recently, Erin took the stage in a brand new piece called Still, Birth, about pregnancy loss. The powerful piece had a run in the Rogue Theatre Festival, presented at the historic 13th Street Repertory Theatre. It is in development for a longer run, hopefully off Broadway!
This past May, Erin played Alice Murphy in Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s Bright Star, the Pittsburgh professional premiere, presented by Front Porch Theatricals. The show received lavish praise as did Erin’s performance:
“Erin Lindsey Krom is a supernova, exploding with intensity. She wows the audience with the opening number, and never lets them go.” -’Burgh Vivant
“…while this story is being told, the show bounces to the present of the 1940’s where Alice, now decades older, is an editor for the Asheville Southern Journal. In addition to Ms. Krom’s vocal capacity and southern accent, her ability to shift characters from a young, carefree teenager to a rigid, serious bookworm is uncanny… her acting shift is transformative to the point where I almost questioned whether past Alice and present Alice were being played by the same actress. They were, and it’s Ms. Krom!” -Dylan Shaffer, Broadwayworld.com
Prior to that, Erin made her directorial debut with Pittsburgh Musical Theatre, mounting Lin Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights. The show played to completely sold out audiences and received a nomination for Best Musical of the year in Pittsburgh City Paper’s Best Of Pittsburgh 2019 Reader’s Poll!
Erin has also partnered with Google and Deep Local, traveling to a handful of cities in the United States as a host to promote the app, Google Photos. This unique endeavor required her to host a game on the streets of cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Austin and Portland.

Not long before all of the above, Erin had the privilege of crafting one of her dream roles, Cathy Hiatt, in The Last Five Years, also with Front Porch Theatricals. Playing opposite the dynamite Dave Toole made the job an absolute blast. Reviews were glowing. Here's a sample: http://www.pghcitypaper.com/pittsburgh/the-last-five-years-at-front-porch-theatricals/Content?oid=1828124
On The Last Five Years
"Krom shines like a diamond. She is most dazzling in a late number that has Cathy auditioning for a show in hilariously trite poses while maintaining a funny-sad stream-of-consciousness monologue." - Triblive.com
On Side Show
"Krom's subtle and affecting portrayal of Daisy is lovely. She is completely in step with Van Cassele's Violet, and as Violet kisses Buddy, her betrothed, Krom blinks her eyes ever so slightly, as if she feels the kiss too… Krom's performance shines the most. It's hard to take your eyes off her." - Backstage.com
"Krom's simply marvelous Sally possesses the determination, desperation and soiled charisma necessary to make the character charming, compelling and ultimately doomed." - Hartford Courant
On Danny and the Deep Blue Sea
"Krom very ably captures the way that Roberta manages the information she chooses to reveal while at the same time cajoling Danny into talking more about his life and background. Krom demonstrates how Roberta's insistence and secretiveness hide a vulnerability as well as a lack of self-esteem that have taken on the proportions of a protective sheen. Dandy performance." - the Examiner
