Lindsay Bartlette Allen

Playwright Lyricist

Lindsay is a theatre artist and storyteller originally from Tuscaloosa, AL.  She’s very passionate about creating new works that feature strong female characters.  In 2013, she founded her own theatre company (Transcendent Ensemble Theatre) and directed its inaugural show in New York: an Equity showcase production of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus that she adapted to center around Lavinia’s trauma journey.  

After self-producing and acting under her company Transcendent for six years across NYC & Chicago, Lindsay co-founded moxie productions.  She’s a co-creator & writer of Someone You Know, the musical, that tells the story of her own sexual assault experience she survived in 2011 and that of another woman.  She will play herself in the premiere production of the show.  Lindsay’s work as a director and actor has been featured at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, the Chicago Fringe Festival, Adirondack Shakespeare Co, Accidental Shakespeare, Stage Left Theatre, and more.  She has studied at The Pearl Theatre (NY), The Scott Freeman Studio (NY), and apprenticed at The Theatre of New Jersey, and currently resides in Los Angeles.
