Linda Riesenberg Rakoff


Linda can’t decide whether to focus on set design/scenic art or she does both; sometimes in the same production! Like way back when she was on stage as Elsa Shraeder in The Sound of Music in Country Summer Theater’s first season. She’s happy to be a scenic artist again with Doug, who had her painting Sunday in the Park with George with a feather duster! Productions Linda has designed, painted, and performed in include Kismet, Carousel, South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof, Kiss Me Kate, and Pajama Game. Favorite roles include Aldonza, Man of La Mancha, Lalume, Kismet, Tzeitel, Fiddler on the Roof, Mrs. Anderson, A Little Night Music, Clo-Clo, A Grisette, The Merry Widow, and of course Elsa.

Linda is happy to help with another Celia production; she owes her big time for pairing her up with Bryon Rakoff in a 1985 show...and the rest is history.
