Benanti is ‘On the Verge’

Actress joins cast of Lincoln Center Theater musical

Laura Benanti is the latest woman to join Lincoln Center Theater’s upcoming tuner version of “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.”

Benanti, who won a 2008 Tony for “Gypsy” and was most recently on the Main Stem in last season’s “In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play,” joins a cast that already includes fellow “Gypsy” alum Patti LuPone, Sherie Rene Scott, de’Adre Aziza, Nikka Graff Lanzarone, Danny Burstein and Brian Stokes Mitchell, among others.
