They / Them
Eli is writing/devising/performing in a brand new, off-the-wall, absolutely bananas reimagining of Shakespeare's bloodiest play. Citrus Andronicus is part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival and runs Sept 7-17!
Eli was at American Shakespeare Center, where they portrayed both Orsino AND Sir Toby in a 6-person adaptation of Twelfth Night, as well as a number of roles in Thrive, or What You Will, a new play by LM Feldman and winner of a 2022 Lambda Literary Award.
"Lynn and Ahlin wonderfully render what’s possibly one of the cruelest scenes in all Shakespeare, a sobering conclusion to the spirited escapades that preceded it."
- Kiran Pandey, Broad Street Review
"The actors in the 2023 "Complete Works" are imaginative, fearless and incredible.
Eli Lynn is an actor of a thousand voices and guises, convincingly, seamlessly and quickly moving from one to the next."
- Lehigh Valley Press
"I haven’t read this play, but I imagine the most frequent stage direction is: “Mayhem ensues.” And it does, especially when Lynn’s fight choreography takes over the second act for a spectacular and hilarious battle."
- Philadelphia Inquirer
"Surely, I am not the only audience member who wants to marry the ensemble that created these two “What You Will” plays; I could watch them do every production I see for the rest of my life."
