Kaitlyn Davis is a native New Yorker, most known for playing Christine Daaé in Cameron Mackintosh's spectacular new production of The Phantom of the Opera. She has performed on stage both nation wide and internationally, and was on NBC's Law & Order: SVU ("Crush"). Her first solo EP of original music, "You Got Me" is now available everywhere digital music is sold, and her first song cycle entitled "Forty Minutes" is available for streaming online. It’s a tapestry piece that features the voices of different people affected by the limitations that the COVID-19 crisis has placed on our relationships with time, with space, and with each other, co written with Emma Grimsley.
Kaitlyn won the Emerging Talent Award from the Kurt Weill Foundation's 2016 Lotte Lenya Compeition, and began touring with The Phantom of the Opera the same year. She played Christine for Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber at the Kennedy Center, Sir Richard Stilgoe (Phantom lyricist/book writer) at the Denver Center, and performed Phantom excerpts for former Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry at the U.S. State Department.
After starting college at age 16, Kaitlyn received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Hofstra University, and a Master of Music in Opera performance from Rutgers University. Equally comfortable in both contemporary and classical styles, she played Hope Cladwell in Urinetown, Ilse in Spring Awakening, Morgana in Alcina, Cunegonde in Candide, Galatea in Acis and Galatea, and the title role in Lakmé over the course of her degrees. Other theatrical credits include shows with the John W. Engeman theatre (Aladdin, Seussical), Baltimore Concert Opera (Lakmé), and Broadhollow Theatre Company (Les Misérables, Into the Woods).
When she is not performing or writing music, she teaches voice and piano lessons to students of all ages, and makes videos pretending to be a middle aged Long Island parent who struggles with technology.
