“Brilliant! A Masterpiece!” raved the New York Times. Through stories and song, Lauren examines the creative genius and conflicted desires of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen — two of folk music’s most enduring artists… and the short-lived affair that had such a profound effect on their work. Lauren delves into the meaning behind the songs, giving us a better understanding of a painter and a poet who mesmerized the world through song.

She has been featured in several films, including “Pi,” “Noon Blue Apples,” “Revolution Summer,” “The Hammer,” and “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” and on TV in FOX’s “New Amsterdam” and “Fringe.” Lauren has several upcoming film and stage projects in development, including her screenplay, “Atlas of the Soul.” She has performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, Carnegie Hall, The Town Hall (NYC), The University Club (NYC), The Crazy Coqs (London), Subculture NYC, Joe’s Pub, 54 Below, The Kate–Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, Pollack Theater at Monmouth Center for the Arts and many more performing arts centers and colleges around the country.
