Laura is an actor/producer/writer, environmental activist and plant-based culinary artist.
Laura’s first theatre company partnered with NYC Pride in 2013 and produced Alexi Kaye Campbell’s The Pride while the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was being argued in the Supreme Court, (on opening night of this production, DOMA was found unconstitutional). Growing up in a family of writers and other artists, Laura has always had a deep appreciation for new voices and is passionate about having them heard. She was one of the founding members and core actors of FRESH PRODUCE’d, a theatre company dedicated to workshopping new pieces of theatre in their early stages. In 2014, Laura became the artistic director for FRESH PRODUCE’d NYC and went on to team up with Mutant Peep Show to produce the first workshop of a fascinating new play dealing with quantum computing (a subject not often brought to the stage), BOUNDED IN A NUTSHELL by Jason C Stuart, in which Laura also originated the role of Deb. She was also one of the original cast members of Play/Date, an immersive theatre show on the Lower East Side of Manhattan inspired by the NYC dating scene.
Laura has studied Nutrition for Healing at The Gerson Institute and Plant-Based Nutrition with the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies, and is currently co-writing a cookbook with Marisa Miller Wolfson of Vegucated. Her ventures into the world of plant-based living led her deep into the world of environmentalism. Now Laura is working to use theatre, photography and other art forms to address and bring more attention to the current environmental crises we face today, as well as other social justice issues.
Laura occasionally finds herself in the independent film scene and has been thrilled to work with such incredible film artists as Dan Hedaya and Al Sutton, as well as her two brilliant filmmaker siblings, James and Micah Delhauer. She and Micah also co-created a vaudeville show, Heavenly and Friends, which Laura produces and performs sporadically in Brooklyn, NY.
Laura studied theatre at Fullerton College in Orange County, CA, and with the one and only Arthur Mendoza at The Actor's Circle Theatre in Los Angeles and is a graduate of Circle In The Square Theatre Conservatory in NYC. She has also studied with the New York School of Burlesque.
