Sierra Boggess was born and grew up in Denver, Colorado. After graduating from university she moved to New York and landed the role of Binky in Princesses which was a new musical. Sierra then joined the Broadway National Tour of Les Miserables where she understudied the role of Cosette.
In 2005 Sierra was picked by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Hal Prince to originate the role of Christine Daae in a new production of The Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
In November 2007 Sierra made her Broadway debut creating the title role of Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid. During her 2 years with the company she received both Drama League and Drama Desk nominations and was the recipient of a Broadway.com Audience Award for “Favorite Breakthrough Performance.”

She played the role of Christine Daae in Love Never Dies at the Adelphi Theatre and recently appeared on Broadway with Tyne Daly in the Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Terrence McNally's Master Class which is a play about Maria Callas.
Sierra appeared as Christine in the Phantom of the Opera's 25th Anniversary Concerts and was due to play the leading role of “I” in the new musical adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca which should have opened on Broadway this Spring but has been postponed until late autumn due to investment problems as has the Prince of Broadway which is a tribute to direct director Hal Prince.
Sierra has just finished appearing in Les Miserables in London's West End playing the role of Fantine but has now returned to New York to reprise the role of Christine in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway for a limited period.
