Ragtime

Role:
Mother, the forward-thinking family matriarch whose tough choices transcend the racial and social bigotry of her time.

Bio Brief:
A veteran of Broadway shows like Jekyll & Hyde (where she originated the role of Emma) and It Ain’t Nothing But the Blues, this pitch-perfect soprano has also appeared off-Broadway in Call the Children Home, A Fine & Private Place and Frankenstein.

Other Honors for this Role:
—Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical
—Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical

Tony History:
This is Noll’s first Tony Award nomination.

Fun Fact:

Quotable Quote:
“When I heard that the Kennedy Center was doing Ragtime, I said, ‘That’s my part.’ It’s so well written and well constructed—and funny! People said, ‘You’ve made her funnier than we’ve ever seen.’ She’s redefining herself as a modern woman, whatever that would mean at the beginning of the last century. It’s just an incredible character.” —Noll in an interview with Broadway.com, 12/14/09
