Lorna’s exceptional career includes work on the Original Broadway productions of shows such as Wicked, Grease, All Shook Up, Harlem Song, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and The Life, as an Original Cast Member or Associate Choreographer — alongside acclaimed talents like Idina Menzel, Stephanie J.

Wolfe (Harlem Song), Joe Mantello (Wicked), Charles Randolph Wright (American Prophet), Jerry Mitchell (Grease), and Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work if you Can Get It) have allowed her to hone her craft and transition with grace into the Director/Choreographer’s seat.

She worked on The Life at Encores alongside Billy Porter as the Associate Choreographer. She directed and choreographed Christmas in Hell, which premiered in Las Vegas at the Reinkus Heinz Theater.
