After being holed up in a hotel room for the past 14 days, Nat Bassingthwaighte was over the moon to finally be let back into the real world.
The former Rogue Traders frontwoman couldn't hide her excitement in the hours before she completed her 14-day stint at the Novotel Darling Harbour.
Nat took to Instagram to share her glee as she counted down her release, saying her stay was "a ride and a half".
"I had so many tears, I lost it quite a few times. But I have made it. I have a couple hours to go and then I am out of here," she told her fans.
After leaving the hotel, Nat documented her first moments of fresh air while being picked up by a friend.
"Holy moly. Air and sky, I never thought I would miss you so much," she exclaimed, before gleefully shouting: "Yay, real life! Freedom!"
Nat had flown in to Sydney from New York City, where she took part in workshops and rehearsal for her upcoming role in Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill musical.
The Broadway musical will open at Sydney's Theatre Royal on December 2 before heading to Melbourne in January.
Nat landed the lead role of Mary Jane Healy and will star alongside a bevvy of renowned Aussie theatre actors, including Tim Draxl and Liam Head.
"This is a powerhouse show," Nat told Sunrise earlier this month.
"It's powerful, it's moving and it really is thought provoking - it's just something you don't want to miss."
According to production's website, the show will feature the fictitious Healy family, who go through the motions of suburban life and deal with issues in their community.
"Driven by the themes and emotions of the original album, the musical embraces today's powerful social voice and burns with passion in its uplifting storytelling, ultimately highlighting the hope and healing that comes when people come together," the musical's bio states.
