The stage and screen actress also spoke about sleeping audience members; “I envy the rest these people get,” she joked.

Performances began March 1 for the world premiere of Dry Powder, about the people shaping the American economy, helmed by Hamilton director Thomas Kail. The cast features Danes, Tony nominee Hank Azaria ( Spamalot), Sanjit De Silva (War Horse) and Emmy nominee John Krasinski (The Office).
