MS. BROADWAY FEBRUARY 2013
WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: This month's Mr. Broadway (HERE) is at the beginning of his latest Broadway journey. This month's Ms. Broadway is coming to the end of hers. Tony nominee Amy Morton is getting to the end of her current critically acclaimed run in Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? It is just the latest in an amazing career that includes a storied part of The Steppenwolf Theatre Company, several films, some television, and of course, more Broadway. She made her Broadway debut in the 2001 revival of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in the iconic role of Nurse Ratched, and six years later, made her Tony-nominated turn in August: Osage County. The author of that play, Tracy Letts is now her co-star, and both seem destined for more Tony glory. But for now, she'll have to settle for being this month's Ms. Broadway!
