From age ten to fifteen Laura sang with the New York City Opera and debuted as a soloist at age twelve playing Flora in “The Turn of the Screw.”
While attending the High School of Performing Arts she won the role of Lisa Monroe in Alan Parker’s iconic film “Fame.” Laura went on to earn a Theater World Award and a Drama Desk nomination for her Broadway debut as Boopsie in Garry Trudeau’s “Doonesbury” and starred as Mrs. Walker in “The Who’s Tommy” directed by Des McAnuff.
