Laura Benanti to Return as Melania Trump on Tonight's LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT?Back in July, Broadway's Laura Benanti took advantage of her eerie resemblance to Melania Trump and appeared in a hilarious sketch on CBS's LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT. (check it out below!) During the bit, Benanti mocked Ms. Trump's RNC speech, which many believed had been plagiarized from an earlier speech made by Michelle Obama.

Today, Benanti turned to Twitter to tease a possible return of 'Melania' on tonight's episode of the CBS late show. Check out the post below. Should Ms. Benanti make an appearance, BWW will be sure to bring you the video first thing tomorrow am!

Watch Benanti's July appearance on LATE SHOW below:

Benanti recently made her return to the Broadway stage along with actor Zachary Levi in a revival of the musical She Loves Me for which she received a Tony nomination.

The Tony Award-winner can currently be seen in the role of Alura Zor-El in theCBS Action Drama, Supergirl. In 2014, she joined the cast of ABC's hit series "Nashville" guest-starring as songbird Sadie Stone. Laura also appeared in recurring roles on CBS's "The Good Wife" and HBO's "Nurse Jackie."

In addition to television work and her critically acclaimed performance as Elsa Schrader in NBC's THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE, Ms. Benanti is a highly celebrated, four time Tony Award-nominated stage actress who took Broadway by storm at the age of 18.
