Tony Winner Nikki M. James Ties the Knot with Derk Alexander Oosterman
The couple met in 2014, while James was starring in Les Miserables, and Oosterman was visiting friends in New York. She told NYT: "When I saw him, I kept thinking how irritated I was that I hadn't brushed my hair or put makeup on. I was playing Eponine, so I had dirt on my face and my hair was a mess. I was sitting at the end of the bar where there was a mirror, and I kept catching glimpses of myself and being embarrassed."
BroadwayWorld sends our congratulations to the happy couple!
