Broadway star Osnes to sing at Valentine's Day concert at Carnegie Hall


Minnesota-born Tony Award-nominated actress Laura Osnes is taking stage in New York City again Friday night. This time, though, it's for a different kind of performance.

Playbill says Osnes is one of the special guests joining entertainer Michael Feinstein in concert at Carnegie Hall. Osnes and singer Julian Ovenden will be joining Feinstein to sing a variety of love songs in celebration of Valentine's Day, the publication says.

A graduate of Eagan High School, Osnes recently returned home to meet with high school students as part of the Hennepin Theatre Trust's SpotLight Program, the Star Tribune reports.

The paper says Osnes had time to return to Minnesota for a break since she left her title role in "Cinderella" last month. The role earned her a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical last year, but she decided to leave the production since many of her colleagues were doing the same.

Osnes will next star opposite Oscar-winning actor F. Murray Abraham in "The Threepenny Opera" at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City.

Previews for the production begin March 12 and the show runs through May 4.

“It's a unique thing to do,” Osnes told the Star Tribune. “It’s darker, more artsy. I’ve been a princess for a year, and it’s fun to do this.”
