James Lindhorst

Jim Lindhorst has been a theater enthusiast for nearly 5-decades. He was bitten by the theater bug as a young teen while sitting in the last row of the upper balcony to see the first national tour of ‘A Chorus Line.’ During high school and college he worked as a part of the stage crew at a regional dinner theater in St Louis, Missouri. While earning his Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications Degree at the University of Missouri - St Louis, he studied Theater History, Production Aesthetics, Stagecraft and acted in shows with the University Players. Over the past 30-years he has been an avid patron of theater, holding season tickets for the Broadway Series at The Fabulous Fox Theater in St Louis and at the St. Louis Muny. A frequent visitor to NYC, Jim has relished seeing the Tony Award winning performances of Lilias White (The Life), Andrea Martin (Pippin), Patina Miller (Pippin), Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans), Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hansen), Rachel Bay Jones (Dear Evan Hansen) and James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin).  He is an avid supporter of Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS (BCEFA.) Jim is looking forward to the end of the pandemic when theaters are no long dark and the lights of Broadway shine bright again.

For safety during the pandemic, each performer is wearing a mask and it seems almost normal.
