Linnae Caurdy is a passionate theatre artist best known for her hugs and for being a double-Scorpio. She believes in truth and honesty. And to be quite honest, if she could be anything in the world she would be a mermaid or a ninja turtle. All of her exes have said she lives in a fantasy world, and she doesn’t think that’s a terrible thing…it just reinforces the fact that theatre is her one true love.
She has lived, worked, acted, directed and helped to create new works in San Francisco, New York, Detroit (as well as other various theatres in South East Michigan) and her hometown and current city, Grand Rapids, MI.
Linnae went to Alma College with a bunch of hooligans and crazy people (also featured on this site). She spent a semester study-abroad at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York City. After graduation from Alma, she said goodbye to the crazies and said hello to San Francisco. She completed a two-year program with Sanford Meisner’s last teaching protégé, Jim Jarrett, at the Meisner Technique Studio and was an associate- company member of Actors’ Theatre San Francisco. Later, she moved to New York and was an active member of Play Club of the Unknown Artists as well as performing in shows throughout the city.
Her biggest dream was to someday be reunited with the crazy people from college—her fellow dreamers and creative family. And here she is, with some of her favorite humans and astounding artists.
In her free time, Linnae can be found drinking copious amounts of wine, binge-watching Netflix, rapping to the Hamilton soundtrack, and watching Elaine Stritch clips on Youtube.
