ACTOR // SINGER // DANCER
"With his talent, matinée-idol looks and appeal, Laudano was ebullient as he shined in the show’s title song. this young actor has the potential to make a name for himself in musical theatre."
-On The Aisle with Tom Alvarez
Heyo! I’m Ian Laudano and I am an artist from Central Jersey [yes it exists; also, its Pork Roll NOT Taylor Ham]. My artistic journey began sitting on my Grandfather’s lap while he played piano and I sang along. My passion for performing, however, was developed in the usual way; impromptu living room performances for the whole family. The most rave reviews came from my acapella rendition of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah and Britney Spears’ Oops I Did It Again played on a painfully out of tune guitar that I did not know how to play. From there the passion for putting on a show was evident to my parents and myself who took advantage of every opportunity to perform I could find. Over the next several years I was in every school performance and a handful of local summer camp shows until I found myself at Montclair State University for college [Go Red Hawks!]. From there I began the pursuit of a career in theatre and have been on that journey ever since! Personal favorites have been Kinky Boots in Ogunquit, Bright Star at Phoenix Theatre in Indianapolis, My Fair Lady at Fireside, The Little Mermaid at Forestburgh and Singin' in the Rain at Wagon Wheel. Other hobbies are DMing a game of Dungeons and Dragons for some close friends, lifting in the gym, reading Comics, making and enjoying craft cocktails, visiting museums and reminding people at every opportunity that I am a proud native central Jerseyan.
