Here are some of the most exciting, young musical actresses working in New York today. I've excluded anyone who's already won a Tony (like fireball Patina Miller) and anyone who's been nominated for a Tony (like go-to ingénue Laura Osnes), figuring those ladies have essentially had a big break already. Also, this list is in alphabetical order, as ranking these artists would be like comparing altos and oranges.
