About this event

Starting from the very beginning, Lauren's dream to be a professional soprano was knocked around by the usual litany of leeches: uninformed counsellors, cranky casting panels, jilting lovers, and inflated egos... But nothing prepared her for her greatest adversary; her own digestive system.

Hold My Hummus: The Secret Life Of A Stubborn Soprano tells the true story of how Lauren Lee overcame it all - hospitals, heartbreaks, and hostile casting panels - with a smile, a song, and a whole lot of hummus.

"Incandescent... a crystalline soprano with keen insight into the emotions and meanings of the music she is bringing to life" TheatrePeople.
"An excellent blend of the sublime with the human...'Hold My Hummus' is definitely something to check out" Pop Culture-y.

Presented by:
Lauren Lee Innis-Youren

Lauren Lee Innis-Youren is a classically trained crossover soprano with a passion for musical theatre and operetta. Since making her professional debut at 18 with Opera Queensland (as a dancer), Lauren Lee has chased a career in the arts feverishly, overcoming battles with shyness, bad-advice-givers, and Crohn's Disease. Prior to moving to Melbourne, Lauren landed many roles in co-op/profit share productions, including Philia in 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum', and starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Tell Me On A Sunday'. More recently, Lauren has created her own work in both concerts and cabaret, with 'Quiet On Set' with Joseph Simons and SunPAC's Emerging Creatives Program, and 'Hold My Hummus: The Secret Life Of A Stubborn Soprano' at The Butterfly Club.
