Sean handed me my second Tony Award. This is the first time I have been nominated in the leading actress category. I think it is wonderful that it would come from my fellow actors. I must have worked with all of you at some point off Broadway.

I thank everyone from Cybill, my darling colleagues: Alan, Alicia, and Dede, and wonderful Cybill who couldn’t be here tonight. My producers, are hard working writers, the wonderful Andy Wayman – our director.

There is a quote from William James that I remember from acting school, “We work in the dark, we do what we can, our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task – the rest of the madness is art.” I know how awkward we all feel about using the A word “art” but suffice it to say, given from my peers, this is such an encouragement to keep trying to do good work. This means so much to me, Thank you. [Applause]
