Must List 2005: Sara Ramirez
The broadway actress makes ''Spamalot'' with her portrayal of the Lady of the Lake
Mustworthiness After biding her time in clunkers like Paul Simon’s Capeman, Sara (pronounced SA-da) Ramirez found the Holy Grail of Broadway musicals: Monty Python’s Spamalot. As the Lady of the Lake, she hams it up with heavyweights Tim Curry, David Hyde Pierce, and Hank Azaria. . .then steals the show from every spotlight-hogging one of them.
Playing With the Boys She’s the only leading lady, but, insists the newly minted Tony winner, ”I’m not just there to walk around with a nice rack. There are challenging aspects to the part.” Like keeping a straight face while farting Frenchmen run amok, we imagine.
Spam It Up! ”I actually dig it. I’m a corned-beef-hash girl, so that has a similar taste.”
Next Spamalot through December.
