We were completely enchanted by Rachel Bay Jones' performance in this season's Tony-winning revival of Pippin. The singing actress, who has previously been seen on Broadway in Hair and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, offered a completely new take on the role of single mom Catherine, one that was delightfully quirky, humorous, moving and wonderfully sung. We'd love to see if she could work similar magic with the role of Fanny Brice.
