She earned a Tony nomination for her performance as Carlotta in a revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies. Her other Broadway credits included Cabaret and Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks.

She also received Emmy Award nominations for her work in TV's "Desperate Housewives," "Playhouse 90," "The Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance," and also starred in feature films such as the classic "Cape Fear."

The event is produced by Rex Reed and Michael Alden with creative consultant Deborah Grace Winer.
