According to her website, Lauren Fox is an “actress, singer, writer, restaurateur, bleeding heart, New Yorker.”
Born and raised in New York City, this gifted artist still resides there, happily, and just blocks away from everyone and everything she needs!
As an actress, 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." Her New York theater credits include: "Hillbilly Women," and "GO-SEE" at the ArcLight Theater, and "Heathens" at Theater For A New City. She played Appalachian women in two of the three, and a trashy Texan in one.
As a singer, Lauren has received numerous accolades. She is the 2012 recipient of the MAC and Bistro Award for Debut Artist, as well as the 2013 recipient of a Nightlife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Performer.
Performing in "cabaret" was something she wanted to do for a long time having known Andrea Marcovicci. She also grew up around cabaret singers Mark Nadler and KT Sullivan. KT Sullivan features prominently in Lauren's career acting as an adviser and mentor. Mark is one of Lauren's dad's best friends. Lauren had always watched all of them and thought, "I'm going to do this someday."
Lauren's last two shows, "Love, Lust, Fear & Freedom: The Songs Of Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen," and “Canyon Folkies: Over the Hills & Under the Covers,” received critical acclaim from The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, among others. The live CD of "Love, Lust, Fear & Freedom: The Songs of Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen" was released in March of 2013.
As a writer, Lauren has several upcoming film and stage projects in development, including her screenplay, "Atlas of the Soul," which is in pre-production.
Along with her sister, Haley Fox, Lauren also founded and co-owns Alice’s Tea Cup, three tea houses in New York City. In 2010 the two sisters co-wrote the Alice’s Tea Cup Cookbook, published by Harper Collins.
As a New Yorker, Lauren is a New York City Ambassador for “Healthy is the New Skinny’s PUP (perfectly un-perfected) Program”, and, in sharing her own struggles as a teenager growing up in New York City, works with young women to inform and empower them.
