Love Letters: Melissa Gardner
is delighted to be back on stage at Florida Rep for this special event. Liz was last seen on the Historic Arcade Theatre as Ann Mathers in George Washington’s Teeth in 2018. Other FL Rep credits: Susan in Veronica’s Room, and PlayLab readings of Rainbow’s Return and George Washington’s Teeth. Other local credits: Women In Jeopardy (Theatre Conspiracy) plus fundraising readings of The Vagina Monologues, Love Letters, and Love, Loss, and What I Wore. Liz grew up on Sanibel Island and started her local acting career upon returning from New York City, often performing at the original Old Schoolhouse Theatre with JT Smith, basking in the excitement of Broadway Palm’s first few opening seasons, and then focusing on Industrial Theatre, traveling across the country as a spokesperson for a variety of large corporations. Liz has been a national television spokesperson and voice-over artist (locals may remember her as the signature voice of 99X). Because of Florida Rep, Liz met and married talented, longtime ensemble member, and now Producing Artistic Director, Greg Longenhagen. They share their lives and love with their two amazing children: Liza Jayne and Jack.
