Laura Benanti in Gypsy

As part of the collaboration between Talk About Equality and Broadway Speaks OUT!, we’re really happy to share with you the “It Gets Better” message from Talk About Equality best friend, Laura Benanti.

Laura is currently starring in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown which opens shortly on Broadway. She won the Tony Award

and every other award imaginable when she portrayed Gypsy Rose Lee in the most recent revival of Gypsy, also starring Patti LuPone. Laura has been in the business since the age of 19, when she appeared in the revival of The Sound of Music, and has since appeared in Into the Woods, Nine, The Wedding Singer and most recently In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play.

Thanks so much to Laura for taking the time to do this.

    Laura,
    You were always my hero! Even when you were a young girl. I hope your message reaches out & touches all those who are bullies & have been bullied.
    You have turned into a wonderful woman & I’m so proud to have known you when you were 14, the same age as my daughter now.
    God Bless You & keep wowing us on Broadway!
    Lori
