Personal Quote:

My mother once said that my first words were 'Tony Award.' Being Texan, she was prone to exaggeration. I think it was something more like 'Me, me, Tony.' - excerpt from her 2002 Tony Award acceptance speech See more »


Made her debut with the New York Philaharmonic in April 2003 in the role of Beatrice in a concert staging of Berlioz's opera "Beatrice and Benedict." David Hyde Pierce (Dr. Niles Crane on Frasier (1993)) played Benedict opposite Harris. See more »
