The only child of a mystery writer and a sitcom boom operator, Miranda Rizzolo grew up with a love of Shakespeare and a talent for making funny faces. When her painful shyness inspired her parents to send her to summer camp, she discovered the brave new world of theater and has never looked back (this, she claims, is her parents' fault for naming her after a Shakespearean heroine in the first place). Leaving her native Los Angeles to attend Yale, she graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Theater and English and was awarded a Marshall Scholarshipto pursue her master's degree in Classical Acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Miranda now lives in New York City and spends her free time drinking wine, re-reading Victorian literature, and applyingMean Girls quotes to everyday life.

[A] sharp turn... by Miranda Rizzolo as Mary Warren, the Proctors' servant.
Miranda Rizzolo makes her Round House debut as Lydia, the youngest and most frivolous Bennet sister. She plays the girl with a childlike charm [and] flitters about the stage. Rizzolo gives a strong performance and hopefully the DC area will get to see more of her.
