Since first appearing as a leprechaun at age seven, Lydia has lived to be on stage. She’s performed Shakespeare and Shaw extensively and has played a wide range of roles, from Eliza Doolittle in “My Fair Lady” and Lady Capulet in “Romeo and Juliet” to seven different characters in the one-woman play “The Amish Project.”


She has had roles with the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Northlight, and Silk Road Theatre, along with others. Some of the most fun she’s had on the Chicago stage was in the long-form improv production of “‘Cast’ on a Hot Tin Roof” and the partially improvised “Flanagan’s Wake.”
