Lindsay Mendez Biography

In 2012, Mendez appeared opposite Derek Klena in Dogfight as Eddie and Rose, and in Wicked as Elphaba and Fiyero. The two frequently perform together at the Broadway supper club 54 Below. Mendez sings jazz and blues at other cabarets and dining clubs with pianist Marco Paguia. The two released a jazz album entitled "This Time" in 2013. Mendez, along with composer Ryan Scott Oliver, founded and runs Actor Therapy: a five-week training experience for young actors in NYC. For her role as Rose Fenny in Off-Broadway's Dogfight, she was nominated for the 2013 Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance, the 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical, and the 2013 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical.

In 2014, she also played Naomi Rodriguez in 21 Chump Street and then in 2015, Laura in the play Significant Other.

While performing in Wicked, Mendez filmed a series of video blogs for Broadway.com entitled "Fly Girl: Backstage at Wicked with Lindsay Mendez", giving an inside look at the smash musical, including interviews with current cast members, glimpses of costumes, sets, props, and how Mendez herself was transformed into the musical's protagonist, Elphaba, the green-skinned girl who becomes the Wicked Witch of the West.

Mendez played Carrie in the 2018 Broadway revival of Carousel, for which she won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. The production also starred Jessie Mueller and Joshua Henry.

In 2019, Mendez co-starred in the CBS drama series All Rise.
