    Congrats and Break a Leg . So happy for her.

  • Courtney Puzzo

    no she’s just gunning for a Tony nomination which ain’t going to happen, she’s a D list star that can’t swing it with the big boys Broadway is harder than the movies by a far shot. sometimes even veteran actors don’t get their first Tony nomination until their last or near last stage appearance Paul Newman is an example he didn’t get Tony nominated until 2003 for portraying the stage manager in Our Town.

  • Jenny

    calm down… nowhere has she said that she’s doing this for a Tony. IF she does happen to get nominated, I’m sure she would be honoured, if the doesn’t, it will still be an amazing opportunity in her career. Chill Courtney.

    So happy for her. Break a leg babyV!

    That’s great news. Congratulations, Vanessa!!! Break a leg, girl. ♥♥

    That’s completely ridiculous. She honestly has always dreamed of Broadway, and the directors knew she was perfect for this role as soon as she auditioned. I agree Broadway is harder than movies; you don’t get 20 takes to do a scene, and it’s grueling to be point perfect night after night in front of a live audience. She is going to be great in this role, and didn’t take this to just get a Tony nomination. Living a dream isn’t all about an award.

    So Nessa, for the first time after six years, won’t go at Coachella Music Festival.

    Hope she’s not like she was in Rent, horrible dancer.

    “She’s really down-to-earth, she’s very sensitive, she’s a true triple threat,” Clark says. “She has a huge heart and she has so much charisma. She doesn’t need any lights on her at all. She just lights up the room when she comes in. And, of course, everybody knows she’s beautiful, but she’s really beautiful on the inside, and I think that’s where a lot of her gift is.”

    Congratulations baby!!!! I love you xxx
