“Bonnie has to be up there because that was the first role that I created for the first time and I feel like that role was my baby. The role started to be created around me and who I was and what I was bringing to the role and I was a part of it for three years, with two out-of-town runs before coming to Broadway. I have this tremendous sense of ownership over it, which is so special and I’ve never felt that for any other show or any other role.”
Happy 31st Birthday, Laura Ann Osnes! (November 19th, 1985)
It’s easy to let this city either swallow you whole or put you up on some golden pedestal…and my faith keeps me grounded, keeps me grateful, keeps me persevering, and keeps me living for a purpose greater than my own.
