I am so happy for Olga. She is one of those actresses that has been around forever. Always doing wonderful work. From off-broadway to replacing people on broadway. From national tours to regional. She is a true theater person. The kind I am so glad to finally see recognized. FELICIDADES MIJA!

She really deserves it. Not just for this performance. But in regards to this performance.. she manages to breathe life into a very generic but enjoyable show. Love her. And what a great voice. I hope she wins.

She brings down the house with Paciencia Y Fe (Patience and Faith) like very no other. She is the real deal. She is amazing.

She is very humble at the stage door.

Agreed...she is really effective in IN THE HEIGHTS. Laura has it in the bag but I hope Merediz at least has a shot.

Can't root for Laura since I have always gotten the understudy whenever I see a show she is in.

I actually didn't love her in In The Heights, but her acting is greta, sometimes she's annoying. But I am rooting for her all the way!

Her performance of PYF in ITH is definitely a show stopper. A well deserved nomination. Congrats!

I was walking by the theater with a friend the other day when he asked who was nominated. I mentioned Lin-Manuel and Robin, and, by then we're passing the stage door and all of a sudden Merediz pokes her head out (in costume, as it was mid-show). So I point and say to my friend "she was nominated, as well." Merediz waved, I congratulated her and she mouthed "thank you."

Only in NY.

Why was she in costume outside? That seems weird. But whatever, she is so sweet every time I see her!

When I saw the show she got a brief but heart felt standing ovation. Much deserved nom!
