As a child, Tony Award®–winning actress Laura Benanti (of Broadway's The Sound of Music, Gypsy, and She Loves Me, plus TV's Nashville, Supergirl, and The Good Wife) first began studying voice with her mother, Linda Benanti, an accomplished actress and singer who had performed on Broadway, off Broadway, and regionally. Linda transitioned out of performing following her turn in the 1981 revival of Brigadoon in order to dedicate more time to being a hands-on mother, and has been a highly sought after voice teacher with a flourishing studio in Kinnelon, NJ for the past 35 years. Now, she returns to the stage with her daughter for a musical celebration of family as part of the Renée Fleming VOICES series.
