One-man Musical Mayhem Comes to Open Stage Jan. 10-11

Mark D. Lingenfelter brings THE LAUGHS, THE LEGEND, THE LINGENFELTER to Harrisburg on January 10-11, 8 p.m. to Open Stage of Harrisburg, 223 Walnut Street, located on the street level of the Walnut Street Parking Garage in downtown Harrisburg.

The presentation is Mark D. Lingenfelter’s autobiographical one man show comprised of a collection of stories and songs about his life growing up as a preacher’s kid in rural central Pennsylvania with a love of musical theatre.


“It’s the story of a person wanting to keep everybody happy and looking for a place to fit in,” says Mark. “It’s a coming of age tale, if by “coming of age” you mean someone reaching his mid-thirties and realizing everything he thought he wanted really wasn’t what he wanted anymore. It’s about putting on the quintessential living room musical.”

Lingenfelter is a performer who blogs and vlogs at his own website,, a website devoted to his musings, rants, opinions and
humorous takes on finding the adventure and humor in the every day. The Laughs, The Legend, The Lingenfelter (The Three Ls, for short) is in essence, the live version of the site and uses stories, videos and songs to tell the story of Mark’s life and his take on the world around him.

Lingenfelter has worked in the theatre as a performer, a director, a choreographer and teaching artist. Favorite roles include Frank Shultz in Show Boat, Sir Evelyn in Anything Goes, Hysterium in Forum, David in The Santaland Diaries and various roles in the multi-character comedies Greater Tuna, The Dining Room and The Good Doctor. Directing and Choreography credits include Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, Little Women, Lucky Stiff, and Seusical, and for the past two years, he has staged Theatre Harrisburg’s Annual Arts Awards Gala. He has been a teaching artist with Open Stage of Harrisburg and Inside Broadway in New York City.
