She settled in NYC in the 1980s, where she made her Broadway debut in Noel Coward's "Present Laughter" and won critical praise (and two OBIE Awards) for creating the roles of Melanie in "Quartermaine's Terms" (1982-83) and the title role of Daisy Werthan in Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Driving Miss Daisy" (1986-87). She received two 1984 Supporting Actress Tony nominations for her work on Broadway in the play "Heartbreak Hotel," with Rex Harrison and Amy Irving and in the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical "Sunday in the Park With George," with Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters.
