Winokur hasn't been part of the New York production since Aug. 10, 2003, when she left the show after a year-long stay. She later took part in the L.A. debut of the musical. Recently, she showed up as a cast member on the new Pamela Anderson sitcom "Stacked."

The breakthrough performance as portly Baltimore teen Tracy Turnblad got Winokur noticed on both coasts. She won the 2003 Tony for Best Actress in a Musical, besting veteran Bernadette Peters and others in the category.

Bruce Vilanch currently plays Tracy's mother, Edna Turnblad.

Performances play the Neil Simon Theatre.
