Benanti was recently nominated for a Tony Award for her performance as Louise in Gypsy, for which she has already won the Outer Critics Award and Drama Desk Award. She previously received Tony nominations for Swing! and Into the Woods, and additional Main Stem credits include The Sound of Music, Nine, and The Wedding Singer.
