THE DIRT: Laura Osnes

Article excerpt

Laura Osnes' Broadway career got off to an unusual start. Instead of going through the standard cattle-call audition process, she took part in the nationally televised reality competition "Grease: You're the One that I Want!" in 2007, which cast the stars of the Crease revival on the Great White Way. Osnes was a fan favorite from the beginning and ultimately scored the role of leading lady Sandy. After Grease's Broadway run, she went on to play leading parts in South Pacific, Anything Goes and Bonnie & Clyde, plus many regional productions. Now, Osnes returns to the Broadway stage to take on a classic, playing the title role in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. The revamped fairy tale opens at the Broadway Theatre in NYC March 3.
