Jenn Colella is a bona fide Broadway leading lady. She has starred in numerous shows on and off Broadway including High Fidelity, Chaplin, and The Beebo Brinker Chronicles. Hey, not many people get to say that their Broadway debut (Urban Cowboy) also happened to be in a leading role. Jenn is a true triple threat whose star is always on the rise. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jenn a few times over the years, and she is as lovely as she is talented. Her performances are show stealers, and her powerhouse belt and comedic timing easily make her one of Broadway’s great, young stars. The out actress talked to AfterEllen recently about her life on the boards.
