Lauriel is currently playing Helena in New York Classical Theatre's production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.' Check out newyorkclassical.org for specific dates and locations.
 

"On top of your list should be the NY Classical Theatre Company's version of this classic Shakespeare comedy...Especially funny are Ian Gould as the egotistical Bottom (soon to be literally turned into an ass) and Lauriel Friedman as the put upon would-be lover with little self-esteem, Helena."

Past Reviews


The Diary of Anne Frank "In the play, quiet interludes are filled with humor, or fear, or tenderness, and provide the most poignant moments of this worthy production...
As Anne, Emmanuelle Nadeau is buoyant, presenting a cheerfulness that feels genuine. She is nicely paired with Lauriel Friedman as Margot, her more reserved sister."  
-Ken Jaworowski for The New York Times


The Diary of Anne Frank "Lauriel Friedman appears to be the opposite of her bold sister Anne. Her failing health throughout the play gives signals of the end to which she will be subjected." -Examiner.com


The Diary of Anne Frank "This moving theatrical piece is impeccably performed with superb direction" -Broadway World


Inspecting: Romeo and Juliet “Her nurse (Lauriel Friedman), though a young actress, gives a salty performance as she lives vicariously through her young ward.” -Nancy Koan for notjustaboutsex 


Inspecting: Romeo and Juliet “Lauriel Friedman’s Nurse […] stood out as particularly refreshing interpretations of their characters.” -Eric Gibson for Theater is Easy


Two Gentleman of Verona “Trust me, normally, if you do Shakespeare with a New York accent people think that you’re probably wrong. But it brings out the fun, raw side of it that people don’t explore very often,” -Nidhi Prakash for Metro
