How long will she be playing Cinderella? I am going in April and what to see her.

She's contracted to January... after that, who knows.

Hopefully she stays on a bit longer. She is truly giving the performance of a lifetime in this role.

She most certainly deserved the Drama Desk for her wonderful performance in Cinderella.

As of now there really is no official word.

I know, I would LOVE to see her too; she is a joy to watch on-stage and (to me) there is no other voice I'd rather listen to. I just love listening to her CD's ;--)

I love her to death and she is one of the most genuinely sweet actresses on the stage. I think she needs to move onto something new and perhaps a bit darker if she wants to win the Tony Award.

I LOVED her in Bonnie & Clyde. I know people had their own issues with the show, but I thought it was strong and had some of the most original music on the stage. Wildhorne will always have a place in my heart.

Kichkinet4life, I completely agree with you. Laura Osnes was terrific in Bonnie & Clyde. I thought both Jeremy Jordan and her were fantastic in that show. I also love the score for that show. I prefer Laura's songs in Bonnie & Clyde as opposed to Cinderella. I'd love to see her do something new and different, although she does make a great Cinderella.

She's young and has a long career ahead of her. Give her time.

I have been mesmerized by Laura's talent and charm since her days as a contestant on the NBC Grease reality show. I have followed her career since then, but (DISCLAIMER!) have no inside knowledge of her plans.

My best guess is that Laura will most likely move on to another project when her contract with Cinderella expires in January. She is so much in demand that her last two roles (Bonnie & Cindy) were written specifically for her. She will be flooded with offers for challenging new projects as the end of this contract approaches.

Laura is interested in creating new roles on B'way and breaking into TV and movies. (She was a finalist for the role of Karen on Smash and recently filmed a guest spot for the new season of Elementary.) If a challenging role that advances her career presents herself, I think that taking it would outweigh the benefits of extending her contract with Cinderella. She could have the opportunity to open in a new B'way show in time to become eligible for a 2014 Tony nomination.

The only way that I can see Laura extending her contract is if there is a time gap between the ending of this contract in Jan. and the beginning of her next project. Unless she decides to take a break, of course.

Will Laura do plays do you think or just musicals. She has done 5 roles since Grease talk about a hard worker.

I would be very surprised to see Laura do a play. She has said that she fell in love with Broadway because it was a career in which she could combine her three loves: Singing, acting and dancing.

I do think that it is possible that she could accept a TV or film role that does not involve singing or dancing, in order to take advantage of an opportunity to break into those mediums. Of course, a TV show like Smash or a movie like Into The Woods would be an ideal way to showcase all of her talents to a national audience.

She'd be perfect as Cinderella in Into The Woods, I'd much rather her than the rodent-like Anna Kendrick.

Of course she could do plays. Sure, she's primarily doing musicals currently, but there's no way of predicting what she may or may not do.

Of course shes been in musicals. Hiding a perfect voice like hers would be tragic.

She's going to be on Elementary this season. We have already lost hopefully temporarily the truly amazing Cristen Milioti lets pray we don't lose Laura.

I'd love to see her in a LaChiusa musical- he writes exceptional songs, especially for sopranos. His shows are usually darker and complex; it would be something completely new for Laura. Of course, he has to write a new show first...

"I would be very surprised to see Laura do a play."

I'm very surprised that you can predict what she will and will not do based on a comment made about why she went into theatre. The girl could do a straight drama, musical comedy, or blockbuster action flick if the opportunity presented itself and she agreed to do it. I don't see her turning down work that will make her more of a star because she prefers singing and dancing. Why are we trying to predict what she will and will not do in her future? The girl is not even 30 yet.

Not saying she will or she won't. Just saying I'd be very surprised if she did. I promise you that this statement is 100% true. Don't like it? Sue me.

I guess I get a bit sensitive about the propensity of some here to belittle the messenger when they disagree with an opinion. Sorry for the over reaction.

Understandable SAMIAM. Bullytrolls like Lizaheadband get wierd enjoyment from mocking others. Dont let the insecure"knowitall" make you react in a way you normally wouldnt. Thats what they want.

I loved her in Bonnie and Clyde (which I saw in Sarasota as well as Broadway), but my favorite was Laura in South Pacific. I've seen that show a hundred times (well, maybe slight exaggeration) but when she realized that the kids were actually Emile's, she totally made the hair on my arms stand up. That tiny bit of acting was simply chilling.
I guess what you're all saying is that I MUST go see Cinderella after all?
