Karen Lange

Native New Englander Karen Lange arrived in Washington in 1997 with a BA in English, her now-husband, and a yearning to get back on stage. She found WIT in 2005 and has been improvising and teaching there ever since.

Karen is a proud original cast member of iMusical, which formed in 2006. Her spinoff musical show, Vox Pop, started at WIT’s Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament and tours festivals around the country. A graduate of Studio Theater Conservatory, Karen also appears in plays around DC.
