Kitty Lunn

Ten years ago, while preparing for her first Broadway show, Kitty Lunn had an accident which rendered her paraplegic. After four spinal surgeries and a great deal of rehab, Ms. Lunn, who is wheelchair mobile, was ready to resume her career as both an actress and a dancer. After joining the Performers with Disabilities Committee (PWD), she was asked to run for the Council of Actors' Equity Association, and being elected became the first wheelchair mobile person ever to hold a Council seat. She was later elected chair of the council. Ms. Lunn is listed in the 18th edition of Who's Who in American Women. Most recently she founded Infinity Dance Theater, a non-traditional dance company for dancers with disabilities and non-disabled dancers over the age of 40. Ms. Lunn serves on the National Board of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, as well as serving as the Director of Services for Persons with Disabilities for the Actors Work Program.
