Chris Allen is our Laner of the Week!

M / L
Chris is a core Laner that has been on the team since 2016. He has worked several gigs but his favorite was the Lifetime Corgis and Crowns event. Civic Entertainment Group produced a live event in Herald Square, NYC dressing up corgis as the Royal Family to promote the new Lifetime movie Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance. Laners were there helping guide people through the experience! Outside the Lane Chris is a very dedicated to sustainability and promotes #zerowaste all the way! He is recently vegan...ish. Chris is also a self claimed "science geek, political nerd & early-onset grumpy old man"! Chris is currently a craftsman at Coach House 5th Ave. He's singing at every cabaret night he can find this summer, auditioning his butt off, & writing a new musical with a friend!
