Jessie Mueller, the beautiful star of “Beautiful”, the new hit Broadway musical about Carole King, earlier this year at the Drama Desk Awards on the Stephen Holt Show. Jessie is seated with Stephanie J. Block, who played the title role in the musical version of the unfinished Dickens novel “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” Jessie played an Indian woman named Helena Landless, virtually unrecognizable in intense Indian make-up.
She was nominated for this striking performance for a Best Featured Actress in a Musical. And she’s on her way to a Tony Award for her bravura turn as Carole King in “Beautiful.”
