Nominated for Best Actress in a Play, Born Yesterday
"I'm so grateful to play Billie Dawn. Garson Kanin is a visionary and a genius. He has created a timeless, vibrant, transformative female character that defies everyone's expectations. And I feel privileged to have the opportunity to explore Billie every night and share the stage with this insanely talented cast! When you're with Robert Sean Leonard and Jim Belushi—it's a hell of a great sandbox to play in!"
