Born in Tamaulipas, Mexico, Karen Rodriguez is proud to live in Chicago and claim it as her artistic home. Her latest project was Another Word for Beauty at Goodman Theatre.
A proud graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, she holds a dual degree in Marketing and Theatre. At UT Austin, Karen honed her skills in new work development and devising, including originating the role of Valencia in Gabriel Jason Dean’s The Transition of Doodle Pequeño.

On her down time, Karen likes to salsa dance, watch stand-up comedy, and wear glitter. She also enjoys making silly voices. Her specialty? Anything involving My Little Pony or Gollum…from The Lord of the Rings.
