Samantha Pauly BIO

Samantha Pauly is best known for originating the role of Katherine Howard in SIX the Musical on Broadway, as well as her portrayal of Eva Peron in Jamie Lloyd’s critically acclaimed West End revival of Evita at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

She began working professionally after receiving her BFA in musical theatre from Viterbo University. She has starred in many regional productions in Chicago including Betsy in Honeymoon in Vegas, Eva Peron in Evita, Jovie in Elf the Musical, and Amber von Tussle in Hairspray, to name a few. In 2018 Samantha joined the first national tour of Jim Steinman’s Bat Out Of Hell as Valkyrie, before an abrupt cancellation. Soon after, she was cast as Katherine Howard in the US premiere of SIX the Musical at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre for which she received a Joseph Jefferson Award. In the summer of 2019 Samantha was hand picked by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Jamie Lloyd to play Eva Peron after an international search for Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s revival of Evita on the West End. The production went on to receive nominations and wins at The Evening Standard Theatre Awards, the WhatsOnStage Awards, and the Oliviers. After returning to the US, Samantha went on to tour with SIX the Musical and made stops at The Citadel Theatre in Canada, and The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Minnesota before landing on Broadway in the early spring of 2020.

Samantha’s TV credits include: “Chicago PD” (NBC), and ads for Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Purina, and T-Mobile. Since her journey with SIX began, Samantha has also been seen and reviewed in The New York Times, The New York Post, The Associated Press, and Vogue Magazine.

Review: RENT Soars at Broadway At Music Circus

A lot can happen in 525,600 minutes. Love is found, dreams are lost, and lives are irrevocably altered. Such is the premise of Jonathan Larson’s rock musical, Rent, which is loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s 1896 opera, La Bohème. Larson wanted to tell the stories of his friends who were afflicted by the AIDS epidemic and, at the same time, highlight the struggles that he and his peers faced as young artists in New York City. Sadly, Larson died from an aortic aneurysm the night before Rent opened Off-Broadway. He would not see it go on to Broadway and win the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama; however, his vision continues in Broadway at Music Circus’ finale of their 2023 season.
