Beth Lane was raised in Chicago, Illinois. She was a fan of the ballet, story theatre and jazz music. In her formative years, she endeavored to be a ballerina but quickly found her way to acting and eventually landed in the Los Angeles by way of New York City where she married and raised three children.
She released the much heralded CD, “Lies of Handsome Men,” and was invited to play NYC and Chicago jazz clubs in support of its release. Following her success as a singer, Beth filmed "Welcome To America Brian Wong" and "Stealing Martin Lane" starring Dylan Baker, (“Spiderman”), "Calling It Quits" starring Dennis Boutsikaris (“W”) and Jessica Hecht (“Fair Game”), and “Hollywood Musical,” in which she plays a producer who catches her husband on match.com and then kicks him out of the house via a hip-hop song. One could call it original. Her gutsy portrayal of a N.O.W. activist on the Onion News website broadcasts regarding fetal consent forms is worthy of a new award category. She is working as always, closely with the voices in her head, usually of the animation and newscaster variety and can be heard on the audiobook, "The Bride Price." Beth’s appearance as Sara Jane Moore in West Coast Ensemble’s critically acclaimed production of Sondheim’s “Assassins,” garnered the Los Angeles Drama Critics Award for Best Ensemble. She has worked in regional theaters across the country including Avery Fisher Hall and The Metropolitan Opera.
