Originally a Jersey girl, Lynn Lobban moved to Manhattan in 1969 where she trained as an actor, singer, and dancer. She appeared in plays and musicals On and Off-Broadway, including Martin Sherman's Rio Grande at Playwrights Horizons, and Berkeley Square with Christopher Reeve at Manhattan Theatre Club. In 1984 she made her Broadway debut in the original production of Quilters after an acclaimed run at Denver Center Theatre and the Kennedy Center. Lobban has done—and continues to do—countless on-camera television commercials, voiceovers, and industrial ﬁlms.
In 1977 she met legendary songwriter/singer John Wallowitch and embarked on a life-changing musical journey. For thirty years she sang Wallowitch songs. Barbara and Scott Siegel of theatermania.com wrote in The Perfect Pair: "She sings this master songwriter's work with the kind of intimacy that comes from a deep experience of his art; no one, other than Wallowitch himself, has performed his catalogue with so much respect, love, and understanding." Lobban created ﬁve shows based on the Wallowitch songbook: the highly acclaimed MAC-nominated Photographs; The Eyes of Lovers which earned her a Bistro Award for Outstanding Vocalist; Frankie & Johnny & Me (Parts I and II), and The Second Time Around.
In 1991 Lobban brought Music Together, the internationally acclaimed early childhood music program, to New York, and was the Director of Music Together of Manhattan for nineteen years. She is the “Mommy” voice on all Music Together collections, as well as the award-winning Music Together Family Favorites: Volumes I and II and Music Together Lullabies. Her songs, Merry-Go-Round and Ladybug, written expressly for the Music Together repertoire, are class and home favorites.
In 2006 Lobban received her MFA in Playwriting from Goddard College where she worked with Deborah Brevoort, Jacquelyn Reingold, and Sarah Schulman.
In 2007 her cabaret play, Quarter to Three, enjoyed a sold-out a run at the Laurie Beechman Theater in NY.
In 2010 her ten-minute version of her absurdist play, Bit of a Blow, had its world premiere at the Short and Sweet Festival in Auckland, New Zealand, and Sydney, Australia, and its U.S. premiere in Los Angeles at Rogue Machine Theater.
"[Quarter to Three is] ...a mesmerizing masterpiece where every action, thought and emotion are one hundred percent believable... Grateful viewers will be awestruck by Lynn Lobban’s courage in presenting her story."
In 2010 after living for forty-two years in Manhattan, Lobban moved to Paris where she lived for three months.
On 1/1/11 she ﬂew to Los Angeles to explore life on the left coast and has been living there ever since. Lobban, a member of Los Angeles' acclaimed Rogue Machine Theatre, has acted in three Around the Clock productions, written songs for Threesomes, and read her work in two Rant and Raves.
Working with musical director and composer Michele Brourman, Lobban made her West Coast cabaret debut at The Gardenia. A member of the Threshold Choir, a hospice-singing group, she has sung with them in both New York and Los Angeles.
In 2003 Lynn released her debut CD, Frankie & Johnny & Me, which paired her favorite Sinatra and Wallowitch songs.
She can be seen in Wallowitch & Ross: This Moment, the acclaimed documentary celebrating the artistic lives of Wallowitch and his partner, legendary modern dancer Bertram Ross, as well as their thirty-six year relationship.
