Laura Leigh was born and raised in the NY Metro area. She has worked in the medical field as an R.N. for over 30 years, including as a front line health care provider during the pandemic.
“I was on location shooting an indy when the sh*t hit the fan in March 2020. I dropped my script and grabbed my stethoscope..”
Ms. Carroll began her “artistic” career directing and performing in musical theatre regionally. She also raised 3 teenage boys in the process (she is happy to report, none are currently incarcerated……)
As her kids got older, she began to work professionally landing the lead as “God” in the Off-Broadway comic farce “God of Marz”. Her reviews were as funny as her performance:
“.....the Jeff Goldblum-esque God (Laura Leigh Carroll) ……should be given her own play. "
"…. This authority, by the way, is someone's Jewish aunt reminiscent of Barbra Streisand (LOVE IT). God (Laura Leigh Carroll) is a hoot - a charismatic, free spirit who speaks her mind and enjoys her liquor over an episode of The Kardashians."
She was cast as a smart but sassy Immigration Officer in the short film “An American Life”, a Bushwick Film Festival finalist and as a sardonic BBC reporter in the hilarious web comedy, “The Dweck Show”. She was the Mayor in “Running- A New Play” which has won multiple screenplay awards.
Laura Leigh has done voice-over for radio and television as well as donating her voice to the “Once Upon A Crime” promos for the SelahWay foundation, a non-profit organization that helps victims of sex-trafficking.
Laura Leigh believes “we are constantly reinventing ourselves to stay relevant, in other words, I’m dancing as fast as I can…..”

God of Marz (Off Broadway):
"Laura Leigh Carroll, who played God, benefitted from some of the best dialogue in the play. Ms. Carroll was a hoot, milking every line for its comic elements. She was entirely human, reminding us that we were supposed to have been created in Her/His image."
"Shaw's play deduces what is truth and what is fiction, then asks us to "consider" what is right or wrong when presented by the ultimate authority. This authority, by the way, is someone's Jewish aunt reminiscent of Barbra Streisand (LOVE IT). God (Laura Leigh Carroll) is a hoot - a charismatic, free spirit who speaks her mind and enjoys her liquor over an episode of The Kardashians."
".....the Jeff Goldblum-esque God (Laura Leigh Carroll) and the hilariously gay Jesus (Adam Chisnall), both of whom should be given their own play. "
