Laura Benanti


She’s strutted on Broadway musical stages and nabbed a Tony, she’s showing up as a hospital exec on USA’s Royal Pains, she was just at the Delacorte Theater for The Tempest, playing a goddess and wearing something she might have worn as Gypsy Rose Lee, and now she’s back here doing the cabaret thing. You can bet no one thinks she doesn’t sizzle in these surroundings: Todd Almond, who wrote the hot Tempest score and her hot-hot-hot number, is the musical director and arranger.
