2011 Tony Awards Preview: Best Actress in a Play

Previous nominee Frances McDormand commands the stage as street-wise and troubled Margaret in David Lindsay-Abaire's Good People, while Hannah Yelland feels the insatiable pangs of love in Brief Encounter, based on the 1945 Noel Coward film. In the revival roles: Nina Arianda dazzles as a former showgirl who might be more than she seems in Born Yesterday; Lily Rabe goes head-to-head with fellow nominee Al Pacino as Portia in The Merchant of Venice; and previous winner Vanessa Redgrave transforms into the titular take-no-guff southern belle in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Driving Miss Daisy.
