Owens, Jamie Torcellini, Timothy J. Alex, Andy Blankenbuehler, Jamie Karen, Lorin Latarro, Carlos Lopez, Michael X. Martin, Wilson Mendieta, Gregory Mitchell, Richard Montoya, Luis Perez, Michelle Rios, Thom Sesma, Jimmy Smagula, Dennis Stowe and Allyson Tucker.
A three-time Tony Award nominee for her performances in Kiss Me, Kate; Ragtime; and Passion, Marin Mazzie's other theatrical credits include Into the Woods, Big River, The World Goes 'Round, the City Center Encores! production of Out of this World and Off-Broadway's The Trojan Women: A love Story, where she met husband Jason Danieley.
