The Umbrella Arts Center presents Tony Award-winner and five-time Tony Award nominee Laura Benanti in an intimate concert performance — two nights only, March 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Hailed by The New York Times for her "effortless" vocals, and by the New York Post for her ability to "whip up laughs out of thin air," Benanti first took Broadway by storm at the age of 18 as Maria in "The Sound of Music," and has subsequently starred in 10 more Broadway shows (musicals, straight plays, comedies and dramas) including "Into the Woods," "Nine" (opposite Antonio Banderas), "Gypsy" (for which she won a Tony Award), "She Loves Me," "My Fair Lady," and Steve Martin's "Meteor Shower" opposite Amy Schumer and Keegan Michael Key.

Her flourishing television and film career has included widely acclaimed appearances on "The Late

Show with Stephen Colbert" as Melania Trump, Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Tick, Tick... Boom!" and roles on Hulu's "Life & Beth," "Inside Amy Schumer," as well as "Gossip Girl," "Younger," "Nashville," "Supergirl," and the highly anticipated second season of "The Gilded Age." In film, Benanti starred in Netflix's "Worth" opposite Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci and Amy Ryan, "Here Today" with Billy Crystal and Tiffany Haddish, and is currently filming the Sony Pictures comedy "No Hard Feelings" with Jennifer Lawrence and Matthew Broderick.

Also a book author and creator of the HBO Max special "Homeschool Musical: Class of 2020" based on her viral social media movement: #sunshinesongs, Benanti released a self-titled audio album for Sony Music Masterworks and currently tours the world performing solo concerts alongside highly celebrated musicians and orchestras.
