Audition Description

Equity actors for roles in THE TATTOOED LADY

Actors local to the Philadelphia area are encouraged to submit.


The Tattooed Lady, a developing new musical from Max Vernon (composer/lyricist of Broadway bound KPOP) and Erin Courtney (Obie-award winning playwright of Map of Virtue) and directed by and developed with Ellie Heyman (Drama League Award Winner for The Great Work Begins, which featured Glenn Close), was awarded the prestigious Pew Center for Arts & Heritage Project Grant for 2020.

The story of The Tattooed Lady highlights one of sideshow's biggest stars, Ida Gibson, in a moving, fantastical tale that reveals the ultimate bond between mother and daughter. Featuring a parade of beguiling characters with both visible and invisible marks, the musical celebrates the resilience of women whose choices have the potential to liberate them. The Tattooed Lady is a musical meditation on beauty, perversity, shattering of taboos, and a woman's right to control her body and choose her destiny.
