[I was raised] in Fort Worth, Texas. There's a lot of indigenous theater there now, but when I was growing up, the only place to see anything was the Casa Mañana Theatre that Billy Rose started. That burned down and the community wanted a theater again so they commissioned Buckminster Fuller to build this big geodesic dome, which was theater in the round. That's where I grew up watching musicals....
Received the Tony as Featured Actress in a Musical for "Thoroughly Modern Millie," as well as the Drama Desk Award.
