Broadway superstar Laura Osnes has been kicked out of a show scheduled to take place at the Guild Hall in East Hampton after she revealed her anti-vax stance. The theater requires performers and staff to be vaccinated or submit a negative COVID-19 test. Osnes was scheduled to perform at the sold-out show on August 29 in front of a star-studded audience but she no longer will be doing so. 

Speaking about anti-vax celebrities, Alec Baldwin was perceived as one after he shared a cryptic social media post about Robert Kennedy Jr and his anti-vaccination stance. Tom Hanks's son Chet was labeled 'total douche' on social media after he declared he wasn't going to allow anybody to stick that "motherf**king needle". British actress Letitia Wright was given the boot from 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' and was replaced with Michaela Coel in July. Wright's anti-vaxx stance is believed to be the possible reason for the same.

Who replaced Laura Osnes on 'Crazy For You'?

According to a report, Laura Osnes declared she wasn't vaccinated and that she has no trust in the efficacy of the available vaccines. This was after the two-time Tony-nominee's co-star Tony Yazbek had asked her if she had received the jab because he was concerned about the safety of his two young kids at home. According to insiders, she was immediately booted from the one-night production of 'Crazy For You' and was replaced by Sierra Boggess

Borges is a singer and theater actress best known for her playing Ariel in the 'Little Mermaid' on Broadway. She has also made notable appearances as Chris Daaé in 'The Phantom of the Opera', 'Master Class', and 'School of Rock'. Her off-Broadway credits include 'Love, Loss, and What I Wore' and 'Music in the Air', alongside Kristin Chenoweth, for New York City Center’s Encores! Series. In the West End, Boggess has appeared as Fantine in 'Les Miserables' and originated the role of Christine Daae in 'Love Never Dies', the critically acclaimed sequel to 'The Phantom of the Opera' for which she received an Olivier Award Nomination.
