No matter how America reacted to the The Sound of Music Live, bringing the awesomeness of Laura Benanti to a wider audience made it worth it.

Don't want to spoil this particular video, but the point when she finally run into somebody who knew who she was supposed to be made me very happy.

It's a shame that she seems to be doomed to pick completely horrible TV projects because she's really quite talented and should be better known outside of musical theatre.

If you're not following her on twitter, well, you're missing gems like:
"I feel like with the right wind machine I would be unstoppable."

And speaking of twitter:
[From @MarinMazzie] @LauraBenanti your @playbill vid was hilarious. Next time go as Clara from the opening scene. You'll get more pics. Xo

If Sutton Foster is any example, she'd still be fucked, sadly.

Yeah, Benanti was the best part of the otherwise lacking in best parts Starved.

I don't want to stereotype or anything but the one guy who recognized Fosca is making it difficult.

The question wasn't whether Mark reminded me of a bald middle-aged musical theater loving gay dude I know, but which one of many it was.

I liked the part where she asked the people in line for Broadway tickets "Who here really loves musicals?" and just got blank stares.

Well, now I am following her on Twitter, and I don't actually know who she is. This could be the beginning of a beautiful stalkship.

Funny, talented, beautiful...she has no place on this "tele-vision" of which you speak.
Although...she might be worked in as Ichabod Crane's sassy younger sister on Sleepy Hollow...
Call me; we'll do lunch.
