Bad Theatre Geek! Bad!

I feel like such a chump. How could I not know that Sara Ramirez, who plays Callie Torres on Grey's Anatomy, is a BROADWAY SENSATION!? I mean, all this time, I thought she was some sassy Latina that GA, with its awesome racially diverse casting, found at some acting school or something, or just at an audition.
WRONG.
Where have I been? She was profiled in Entertainment Weekly last year. She trained at Juilliard. She won a Tony, for Pete's sake! And here I've been just thinking she was great. Now I know that she's GREAT. And she sure as hell can sing.

Sara, I never doubted you, but now my respect and admiration for you have grown. You just might be my new favorite young actor.

I'm not familiar with her. What show did she win a Tony for?

Spamalot, 2005. She played the Lady of the Lake.

She still has to prove herself to me on that show.

I've only seen Grey's once but thought that she was terrific!

Ah, this makes sense... I've been trying to figure out who she is... She looked familiar... now that you say that, I remember her performing "Follow Your Grail" on the Tony Awards...

i think she is awkward on the show....her whole character in general. And that extra 10 pounds that the camera adds all went to her hair and her head....it's huge! what the hell did she do on broadway and win a tony for??? Fill me in wise one.
