Lauren is one of my favorite performers - she can do anything, from ukelele to high soprano. I got to know her work when she was "Johanna" in the Sweeney Todd revival. She has two fantastic albums so far, doo-be-doo and Sea for Two, are among of my favorites and aren't anything like her Broadway work - smart, sweet, and surprising. She's always delightfully showcasing her work on her youtube channel.
