Lorens Portalatin

Lorens Portalatin is a bionic go-getter with a passion for the arts. She is a native Puerto Rican who has made her home in Texas. Lorens grew up with a love for theatre that was fueled by a decade's worth of dance classes and many trips to Half Price Books for original Broadway soundtracks. Back in 2019, Lorens was seen onstage at the Dallas Theater Center as Carla in IN THE HEIGHTS. During COVID, Lorens has taken on the challenge of getting a cosmetology license and melding her love of theatrical costume design and hair. For BroadwayWorld.com, Lorens serves as the Senior Editor for Broadway World’s Dallas and Fort Worth area.
