The path Laura Osnes took led her to become one of Broadway’s biggest stars—a two-time Tony nominee whose Main Stem credits include Grease, Cinderella, Bonnie & Clyde, South Pacific and Anything Goes. But what about the path she didn’t take? In her exciting new 54 Below show The Paths Not Taken (Dec 9-15), Osnes revisits shows, roles and songs that didn’t work out for one reason or another. BroadwayBox caught up with the delightful leading lady for a 10-question interview in which she had to respond to each question with a song from the set list to The Paths Not Taken.

1. Song to describe growing up:
"Part Of Your World"—Basically every girl's staple song from childhood.

"Far From The Home I Love." Just kidding! Actually "Not For The Life of Me" is much more accurate.

"Let Me Be Your Star"

4. Song that describes hubby Nathan Johnson:
"Heather On The Hill"

"Popular." Also kidding... If I'm not in a show, I'll be at home on my couch watching Master Chef with Nate.

9. Song to describe your fans:
"For You"

10. Song you’d use as the Laura Osnes theme song:
"Look With Your Heart"
