Broadway Ladies: Ms. February 2012: Celia Keenan-Bolger

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO VOTE IN THIS MONTH'S POLL
 AND IN ROUND 3 OF HOT/HOTTER (LOOK TO YOUR LEFT)!

Ms. Broadway February 2012
Celia Keenan-Bolger

WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY:  It is really hard to believe that she's only been on Broadway in two shows: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and the revival of Les Miserables.  Perhaps that is because of the number of high profile regional and off-Broadway shows she's been associated with.  Maybe it is the caliber of her co-stars.  And what a season she is having!  Just this season she has starred in the Broadway-bound Peter and the Starcatcher (casting has not been announced, but I hope she stays with it) and she is currently making a star-turn in the Encores! revival of Merrily We Roll Along.  With such talent and range, it is no wonder Celia Keenan-Bolger  is Ms. Broadway for February 2012. (Click HERE for my Merrily review.)

OTHER INFORMATION:
  • Age: 33, though she looks a decade or more younger!  :-)
  • Education: Graduate of University of Michigan's Musical Theatre Performance Program
  • Family: Sister of actor Andrew (Mary Poppins, Newsies) and playwright Maggie, married to John Ellison Conlee (The Full Monty, 1776)
  • What else you might have seen her in: Broadway: ...Spelling Bee (Olive Ostrovsky), the revival of Les Miserables (Eponine); Off-Broadway: A Small Fire, Saved, Little Fish, Summer of '42, Peter and the Starcatcher; Encores!: Juno, Merrily We Roll Along; Regional: The Light in the Piazza (World Premiere - Seattle), Sweeney Todd (Kennedy Center's Sondheim Celebration)
