About This Gallery

Laura Benanti, the glorious Tony winner among Tony winners (her co-stars Patti LuPone and Boyd Gaines also won trophies this year) makes a remarkable transformation in Gypsy eight times a week. It's the ultimate ugly duckling story as a tomboy grows up and becomes a glamorous burlesque queen. We decided to find out how the down-to-earth Benanti finds her inner swan (and duckling for that matter) backstage at the St. James Theatre by checking in with the actress as she goes from Laura to Louise to Gypsy Rose Lee. Sit back, relax... and let her entertain you!
