Valerie diLorenzo, a native New Yorker, is an accomplished, professional and award-winning singer and actress for over 25 years.
She originated the role of Texas Guinan, in the new musical Jenny & Me (The History of Sardi’s), which had its debut at the York Theatre in NYC
the role of Elizabeth Deane and Madame Bertin (alongside Mr. Richard Chamberlin) in Unlikely Allies, a new musical by Martin Rabbett and Joel Paul
the role of Ginger in And I Always Will, a new play by Diana Canova
and Mother in ECO, (a post apocalyptic musical by Jenna Mate) at NYMF, Guild Hall & Southampton Arts Center
Valerie’s one-woman shows have been defined as “...a seamless venture of magic in the making.” Her voice and showmanship have been critically acclaimed for presenting interesting and exciting
music matched by "a beautiful voice, the kind most musical theatre wanna bees aspire to... and an engaging demeanor most society hostesses would give their eye tooth for.”
She continues to bring her popular cabaret and concert series to many venues throughout NYC and the East End and South Florida including: Guild Hall, Laurie Beechman Theatre, The Metropolitan Room, The Triad, Judy's, Tatou, Don't Tell Mama's, The Duplex, the Tunnel, Avram Theatre, Southampton Arts Center, Levitas Center for the Arts, The Suffolk Theater, Caramoor Center for the Arts, Mohonk Mountain House, Aventura Arts & Cultural Center (FL), The Broward Center, Ruhala Performing Arts Center (MI), Carroll Arts Center (MD), and Odette's and Frangelica's (PA), to name a few.
Valerie is also a proud card-carrying member of the Actors Equity Association - some of her favorite theatrical credits include: Rose (Gypsy), Mrs. Johnstone (Bloodbrothers), Miss Mona (The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas), Sheila (A Chorus Line), Nancy (Oliver!), Miss Hannigan (Annie), Stella Deems (Follies), Marta (Company,) Sweet Sue (Sugar), The Baroness (The Sound of Music), Bunny (The House of Blue Leaves), the Courtesan (The Comedy of Errors) and Belinda (Noises Off)
The New York Times said..."Ms. diLorenzo walked with the acting honors of the evening...for her performance as Sgt. McCoy in the Fleetwood Stage production of And Call Me In The Morning." The
Baltimore Sun Times headline read "Strong Mama Rose Propels Gypsy." The Morning Call in Allentown, PA called "Ms. diLorenzo's performance as Nancy a wonder", and claimed her "wonderfully comic as the slatternly Miss Hannigan in Annie...with a showstopping version of 'Little Girls.'"
Valerie is also the Founder and Curator of Standard Fair, which produces concerts and special performing arts events dedicated to keeping the Great American Songbook Alive
including the acclaimed Ladies of Liberty,
celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Rights.
And a special fun fact – she sang the National Anthem for the NY Mets for over 15 seasons!
