Once upon a time, in the kingdom of Manhattan, Benjamin Rauhala had a birthday party and invited his dear friend, Laura Osnes, fresh off her run as Broadway’s Cinderella. He shared with her his idea of a concert full of beloved Princess songs, and that he wanted her to co-host. Laura’s heart leapt with joy and within hours, she had dreamt up which of her Broadway girlfriends would sing each iconic princess song.
She would, of course, embody Cinderella, but who would Ben be? Gus-Gus, the mouse? Flounder, the guppy? The Fairy God…father? Ah, ha! They had it… He would be our Fairy Godfairy! It was a perfect fit, like a glass slipper. And with their vision to make it more than just a concert – an actual royal gathering of princesses with glitter and decorations — they came to call it the Broadway Princess Party.
