Lisa has appeared in 18 Broadway shows over her many decades as a dancer. Casey Nicholaw refers to Lisa Gajda as his “muse” and anybody who knows her, knows her not only as a pillar in the Broadway community but also for her quick wit, honesty, and hard work. Beyond her unprecedented amount of Broadway credits, she is one of the most honest and charismatic human beings I’ve ever been lucky enough to work with. Lisa brings her strong and unapologetic sense of self to every project she does and our interview truly left no stone unturned.
We talked through falling in love with dance, navigating unemployment, finding her place in the theater industry, how social media is effecting performers, and her new career change.
This is Lisa Gajda.
