It was the best type of wake-up call.
Eagan High School grad Laura Osnes was asleep Tuesday morning when her cell woke her up. It was her agent, and she was sleepy. She ignored the call.
Then the phone of her husband, singer-songwriter Nate Johnson, started chiming. “I answered it to the voice of my agent saying, ‘Laura Osnes, you’ve just been nominated for a Tony Award!’ ” she recalled from her New York home. “I instantly started bawling. My heart was pounding and I couldn’t help but hug Nate and just cry! It’s that moment you dream of your whole life.”
Osnes, who is vying for best actress in a musical, said that the Tony nomination — her first — is especially meaningful because it comes five months after “Bonnie and Clyde” closed on Broadway after an abbreviated run. “We were not forgotten,” she said.
