Broadway Ladies: Ms. August 2010

Last month we celebrated a Broadway lady just as she was about to start her latest gig on the Great White Way.  This month, I'd like to celebrate a very talented triple-threat actress who is finishing her latest Broadway adventure this weekend.

Audiences have thrilled to her rocking ways as the original Ariel in Footloose: The Musical, howled at her sharp satiric wit (and lovely voice) as she played Hope Cladwell in Urinetown: The Musical, Oz fans have giggled along with her as Glinda in Wicked (I'd love to see what she can do with Elphaba!), and she has spent this past spring and summer showing off her comedic and vamping skills as the lusty soprano Diana in Lend Me a Tenor.

Sadly, that show closes tomorrow.  But I'm sure we'll see Ms. August very soon in some new project.  Maybe a drama?  Another musical?  Who knows?  Whatever it will be, I'm sure she'll be terrific in it.

Here's Ms. August 2010: Jennifer Laura Thompson!
