Ethan Carlson


Ethan started performing as a competitive gymnast in Topeka, Kansas, where he received his early education at Cair Paravel Latin School — which was a Chronicles of Narnia-themed elementary and high school (it was amazing). During this time he found a simultaneous love of musical theatre and The Lord of the Rings. After a Google search revealed he could not actually become a Hobbit he attended Interlochen Arts Academy, followed by Pace University, where he received his BFA in Musical Theatre (’16). Favorite credits include LeFou (Beauty and The Beast) at The Fulton Theatre, Maine State Music Theatre and Syracuse Stage, Eddie (Mamma Mia!), Dog Opera (Jackie), West Side Story (Baby John), as well as readings of FLY, directed by Jeffrey Seller, Darling and Rope, both by Ryan Scott Oliver. He’s also performed in concerts presented and featuring work by Adam Guettel and Sam Willmott, as well as Ryan Scott Oliver’s opening American Songbook at Lincoln Center. While some people prefer the saying “This too shall pass,” Ethan prefers “Thou SHALL NOT PASS.” Also anything Maggie Rogers or Regina Spektor will do, thank you.
