Erin Lindsey Krom is an actor, director, producer, and educator with decades of experience in the entertainment business. Since graduating from Point Park University with a BFA in Theatre Arts, she has worked consistently in developing new works, in regional plays and musicals, and in film and television.
The breadth of her experience in theatre performance alone runs the gamut, from performing in iconic pieces such as Cabaret and Our Town to developing brand new work with the likes of New Circle Theatre Company, with which she is now a resident member. As a collaborator with seasoned playwrights, she has helped to take pieces from the reading and workshop stages to the full production stage, originating many roles in world premieres (Ethel Rosenberg, Red; Frieda, Henry). Erin has experience with many styles, tones, time periods and dialects and is just as keen to work on stylized and period material as she is to work on realism.
Outside of theater, Erin also has experience in the amusement park industry, making her most noteworthy turn in this field as Ariel in Disneyworld’s The Voyage of the Little Mermaid. She is just as well versed in recreating iconic characters that must be treated with particular specificity as she is in allowing creative expression and true exploration to mold a character from scratch.
In the film, television, commercial and print world, Erin has also worked on a wide range of projects, from heavy drama (Intrusion, Son of Mourning) to improvised comedy. Commercial endorsements include Race Face sunscreen, Bright House, Bass Pro Shops, and Hasbro Toys.
Additionally, Erin has worked regionally as a director and has helped produce Broadway’s Something Rotten (Tony nomination, Best Musical) at the St. James Theatre & first national tour and It’s Only A Play (Tony nomination, Best Featured Actor in a Play).
She has taught masterclasses at Point Park University, Gracie’s Guys and Gals Dance Studio, and in various schools in Baltimore, Maryland.
It is Erin’s philosophy that hard work, focus and genuine curiosity will help all young actors find what they need to produce strong stage presence and a compelling and powerful character and performance.
