Not only is one of the funniest people on Broadway wowing audiences as Eliza in My Fair Lady, but Laura Benanti also happens to be precisely why Twitter was invented.

Six time Tony Winner Audra McDonald is actually perfect, so why wouldn't she be brilliant at sharing her life on social media? From showing off her baby bump to urging her followers to vote and bringing attention to vital social issues, McDonald's Instagram is a rallying cry in the form of a velvety soprano.

If the word “snort” isn’t an abbreviated way of saying “short snore” I will be terribly disappointed in the English language on the whole— Patti Murin (@Patti Murin) 1552232620.0
She may be playing a Princess on Broadway in Frozen, but Patti Murin is super relatable. From awkward interactions at a coffee shop to adventures at The Container Store, her feed is almost as entertaining as her performances.
5. Betty Buckley
This star is leading the tour for the wildly popular Hello, Dolly! revival, but she still finds time to post about what she's up to, offering thoughts on politics, motivational quotes, and moments backstage while she's on the road.
