PHOTO ARCHIVE: Celebrating Two-Time Tony Award Nominee Laura Osnes
19 Nov 2013
Tony nominee Laura Osnes celebrates her birthday Nov. 19. Playbill.com traces her path as she went from reality TV contestant to one of Broadway's favorite leading ladies in just 5 short years.
Osnes burst onto the scene as winner of the TV program "Grease: You're the One That I Want!" After starring as Sandy in the 2007 revival, Osnes has gone on to appear on Broadway in South Pacific, Anything Goes, Bonnie & Clyde and Cinderella. She is also a regular on the concert stage.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
