On Broadway she   played Mama Morton ( yes just one character...all night) in the 2nd longest running musical of all time CHICAGO   (THE longest running AMERICAN musical BTW.)  Her Broadway debut was in LITTLE ME with Martin Short & Faith Prince, directed by Rob Marshall and she played several peculiar callers (again with the voices) opposite Liev Schreiber (well not opposite ... she was in the basement of the Longacre Theatre talking into a microphone while he was acting and smoking on stage but it was dynamic) in Eric Bogosians TALK RADIO directed by Robert Falls.
