TPAC and PNC Bank present Live From the Westside: The Women of Broadway
Live From The West Side: The Women of Broadway welcomes Tony Award winner, singer, actor, and activist Laura Benanti on November 14 for an extraordinary night of musical performance. With Broadway credits ranging from the “My Fair Lady” revival and “Meteor Shower” to “She Loves Me,” Benanti won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for the 2008 production of “Gypsy” – among five career nominations to date. Her performance in “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” was honored with the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award. Simultaneously, she enchanted audiences on the small screen, appearing on “Younger,” “Supergirl, “Nashville,” “The Good Wife,” “Nurse Jackie,” and films including “WORTH” and the upcoming “Here Today.” Benanti’s recent social media campaign, #SunshineSongs, which invited students whose school musical productions were canceled due to the pandemic to share videos of their performances on social platforms, generated over 4 million impressions and received over 10,000 submissions, attracting celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jennifer Garner to participate. Based on its popularity, HBO Max has partnered with Benanti to release a documentary special, “Homeschool Musical: Class Of 2020,”this fall. Benanti will release new solo music from Sony Music Masterworks this year.
