It has just been announced that Laura Osnes, the star of the recent Broadway revival of Grease, will take over the lead in Broadway’s South Pacific when Kelli O’Hara departs the production in March. Replacing a Broadway veteran and multiple Tony nominee like O’Hara in a prestigious Broadway hit like South Pacific is a major sign of legitimacy for Osnes, who snagged her Broadway debut role as Sandy in Grease by winning a reality TV show, NBC’s Grease – You’re the One That I Want.
