Even though she hasn't trod the boards in 15 years, she's done a number of theatre-related projects including 2003's Camp, which includes Kendrick doing a killer rendition of "The Ladies Who Lunch."

And she's apparently in talks to star as Cinderella in the film version of Into the Woods.
I have a feeling that eventually, she will find her way back to Broadway. And maybe this time, she'll win that Tony!
