Sierra Boggess Returns to SCHOOL OF ROCK After Suffering Ankle Injury

pixeltracker has confirmed that School of Rock star Sierra Boggess returned to the stage last night, complete with a brace on her left foot and ankle, after suffering an off-stage injury.

"Sierra returned to the show last night after her brief absence and everyone was thrilled to have her back," said Andrew Lloyd Webber.

School of Rock - The Musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band.

Boggess recently concluded a run in the Broadway musical It Shoulda Been You opposite Tyne Daly under the direction of David Hyde Pierce. Other Broadway credits include a limited run as Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera as well as the 25th-anniversary engagement in The Phantom of the Opera, the revival of Master Class and The Little Mermaid. Her London credits include LES MISERABLES, the 25th-anniversary concerts of The Phantom of the Opera at Royal Albert Hall, and Love Never Dies (Olivier Award nomination). Boggess's other New York theater credits include the one-night-only concert of Guys & Dolls at Carnegie Hall opposite Nathan Lane, Patrick Wilson and Megan Mullally; the final off-Broadway cast of Love, Loss, and What I Wore; and Music in the Air for City Center's Encores! series. She also starred as Christine Daae in the Las Vegas production of The Phantom of the Opera. Regionally, she has been seen in Princesses (world premiere, Goodspeed Opera House and Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre), and the national tour of LES MISERABLES.

Her recordings include the 25th-anniversary concert of The Phantom of the Opera (also on DVD), the symphonic recording of Love Never Dies, The Little Mermaid, and Andrew Lippa's A Little Princess. Concert appearances include the BBC Proms at RoyalAlbert Hall, Lincoln Center's American Songbook series The Lyrics of David Zippel, The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, and Broadway by the Year at Town Hall. Boggess has appeared several times at 54 Below, her first appearance resulting in the release of her first solo recording, Awakening: Live at 54 Below. She played her second solo show, Finding the Balance (The Journey of the Middle Child), to sold out audiences at 54 Below and San Francisco's Feinstein's at the Hotel Nikko.
