All shook up
"One of the greatest standouts of this production was Lily Kaufmann – who plays Tracy’s bumbling sidekick, Penny Pingleton. Kaufmann, a Kansas City native and recent Florida State University grad, is hilarious in the role – humanizing a character that, ultimately, has an impressive transformation herself."
~Matt Riedl, The Wichita Eagle
"Lily Kaufmann rocks the show from curtain until bows as Natalie (or 'Ed'), with an intricate performance bursting with character. [...] There's a decisive humor that Kaufmann brings to the stage, one smartly bringing the show up higher than it has any right to."
~Trevor Durham, Broadway World
A lil' about lil
Thanks for stopping by! I'm a Kansas City native turned actress and yogi. I received my BFA in Music Theatre from Florida State University, and moved to New York City shortly after to pursue my dream of dancing on Broadway.
I spent 2019 around the country with the National Tour of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, and made my Broadway Debut in MEAN GIRLS in 2020. Previous summers have joyously been spent with the resident companies of Pittsburgh CLO, Music Theatre Wichita, and Broadway Dreams Foundation.
I am a certified Yoga teacher, a proud member of Actor's Equity Association, and a vivacious extrovert. Welcome to my site!
