Spotlight On Christiane Noll

Driven. Sensitive. Fun. Passionate.

These may be four adjectives in the English language and taken out of context don't have much significance, but when used to describe an individual, they certainly make much more sense. That individual is one of the leads in Jekyll and Hyde, Christiane Noll.

Christiane embodies these fine attributes. Add in such qualities as sense of humor, goal oriented, and adventurous, you come to see who this fine actress is. Christiane says the theater industry is "self-absorbing". An actor/actress has to market themselves. Christiane has the marketable qualities to move herself from what she describes as the "new, up and coming, well rounded, understated performer" to the well known star status.

Christiane is a versatile, multi-faceted actress who insists she is not "a one trick girl."

Broadway is a milestone for Christiane who started singing up on a step stool when she was a little girl. Both of her parents were in the business. Her mother was an opera singer and her father a conductor. Her parents, who are also her support structure, helped instill values in how Christiane now approaches the job. Christiane points out that, "unless you have lived, felt, and experienced your emotions as well as read and learned things, you have nothing to act, nothing to draw on." Christiane has been involved with some wonderful shows including Grease, Miss Saigon, and City of Angels. Her involvement in these shows gave her what she refers to as "life experiences." Christiane has made it to Broadway, not just because of the support and experience, but also because of her love and passion for the profession. It is a passion that shines through in each one of her performances as Emma Carew at the Plymouth Theater.

Jekyll and Hyde is Christiane's Broadway debut. First national tours include Jekyll and Hyde (formerly Lisa Carew- original cast- Joseph Jefferson Award nomination), Grease! (Sandy), Miss Saigon (Ellen-original cast), City of Angels (Mallory/Avril), and the international tour of South Pacific where she portrayed Nellie Forbush, directed by Christopher Renshaw in Thailand.

Favorite Regional include: Jekyll and Hyde (TUTS/5th Ave. Theatre), All Night Strut (Alabama Shakespeare Festival), Oliver (Carousel Dinner Theatre), Cinderella, Annie, My Fair Lady, The Student Prince, Sweeney Todd (Pittsburgh CLO), Encores! Out of this World (City Center). TV credits include As The World Turns. Christiane is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University.
