How did her career path take her to Broadway? "I had two goals [after Juilliard]. The first was to dance in a few modern dance companies and travel around the world. My second goal was to shift over to Broadway. I recognized by my third year [of traveling with Momix] that it was not a place that I saw myself long-term, because I love to travel, but doing it 50 weeks a year... it's hard. So I started auditioning for Broadway," she explained.

Lorin choreographed Broadway and London's WAITRESS and LA TRAVIATA at The Met Opera. Lorin is directing Candace Bushnell's one woman show, IS THERE STILL SEX IN THE CITY.
Additional Broadway choreography includes Les Liaisons Dangereuse with Janet McTeer and Liev Schreiber, and Waiting for Godot with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Lorin is the Associate Choreographer of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and American Idiot.

Lorin directed #DateMe at The Westside Theatre, A Taste Of Things To Come at Chicago On Broadway and The York.

Lorin performed in fourteen Broadway shows including Twyla Tharp's Movin' Out, Fosse, Swing!, Kiss Me Kate, A Chorus Line, and Man Of La Mancha.
