EXCLUSIVE: She may be playing biological mother to Supergirl Melissa Benoist in the upcoming CBS series, but multi-platform star Laura Benanti (Nashville, The Sound Of Music Live) is doing some flying of her own: A little over a year after signing with CAA, she’s just jumped to UTA.
Benanti, a Tony-winning actress (for Gypsy) is also set to return to Broadway in 2016 with the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of the musical She Loves Me, opposite Zachary Levi. And she’s releasing her first book of comedic essays through St. Martin’s Press next year. Recently she finished playing Sadie Stone in Season 3 of ABC’s Nashville.
She continues to be repped by Emily Gerson Saines at Brookside Artist Management.
