Born to Garland and producer Sid Luft, Lorna at 16 shared the bill with her mother on Broadway in a month-long concert engagement at New York's famed Palace Theater.
By 19, she was starring in Broadway on her own in Neil Simon’s hit musical Promise Promises, and has continued to tour and perform on and off Broadway, on the London theater stage and in many regional and national touring theater presentations.

In 2004, she debuted her one-woman show, Songs My Mother Taught Me.
