Ex-Broadway Star Laura Osnes, 6 Time Tony Nominee, and Anti-Vaxxer Compares Her Ostracism to Jesus, Says Settled NY Post Defamation Lawsuit
We first learned that former Broadway star Laura Osnes was putting her career in jeopardy in the summer of 2021. She refused to be vaccinated for a Hamptons production. She was fired, the NY Post reported, and subsequently lost a couple of other jobs.
Osnes was immediately ostracized from the Broadway community. She had had two Tony nominations on six Broadway productions. But she was outspoken and it all came out.
Now Osnes says in an interview, picked up Chris Peterson’s OnStage blog, that she knows her time on Broadway is over. She compares herself to Jesus Christ. She says she and the Post recently settled the defamation lawsuit, but the stigma against her lives on.
