Sherie Scott, a slightly larger-than-life version of the real Sherie Rene, who’s prone to vaudevillian antics and slight elaborations on true stories.
Scott’s powerhouse pop soprano has made her a staple on the New York stage in Broadway hits like The Who’s Tommy, Grease, Aida, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and The Little Mermaid, as well as off-Broadway in the avidly worshipped The Last Five Years.
Other Honors for this Role:
—Broadway.com Audience Award nomination for Favorite Leading Actress in a Broadway Musical
—Broadway.com Audience Award nomination for Favorite Diva Performance
—Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical
2005: Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
One of Scott’s first professional credits was as the voice of heroine reporter April O’Neil in campy ‘tween cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Coming Out of Their Shells Tour.
“You have to look at what [a Tony nomination] is really about—we’re not athletes. There’s no finish line or losers in this art form. So the awards are more a way of getting people involved in Broadway. Once you look at it that way, and remember the whole competition aspect of it is ridiculous and more an excuse to throw a great party, then you can enjoy it. I can force myself to put on a dress for that!” —Scott to Broadway.com, 5/4/10
