Leslie Lund (she/her/hers) has been a company member with Trap since 2013. She has previously worked for a number of years as a teacher and director of children and young adult musical theatre with Studio BE. Leslie graduated from Millikin University with her B.F.A. in Acting and graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with a M.A. in Counseling Psychology. When off stage, Leslie works as a psychotherapist specializing in anxiety related disorders. She aspires to open her own practice where mental health, the expressive arts, and animal assisted therapy can join together to help facilitate an environment of therapeutic healing and growth.
There’s even an innocent Cundegonde-like creature, known to the others as Justice, who ends up betrayed and battered. She’s played by the stellar Leslie Lund, who nimbly negotiates both an achingly funny striptease and a patho-laden denouement as the young daughter of an idealist academic who unwittingly pimps her out.
Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune (about Vatzlav)
The entire cast brings the emotion, humor and, ultimately, the horror of Roland Schimmelpfenning’s play to life in a way that will haunt you for days after.
Zach Freeman, Newcity Stage (about The Woman Before)
…we need this unique presentation (…), a collaboration between this awesome ensemble (…Chicago’s amazing avant-garde company Trap Door Theatre) and an international group of guest performers and directors.
