Judy Kaye first came to prominence playing Lily Garland in the original Broadway production of On The 20th Century opposite John Cullum and Imogene Coca. In a career spanning five decades, she has played theaters and concert halls across the globe, in roles as diverse as Lucy Van Pelt, Rizzo, Maria Von Trapp, Mrs. Lovett, and Grandma Kurnitz in Lost in Yonkers. Recent Broadway appearances include Cinderella, Wicked, Anastasia and Diana. She played Eurydice in Orpheus In The Underworld, Musetta in La Boheme, and Lucy Lockett in The Beggar’s Opera at The Santa Fe Opera. She has twice received the Tony Award; first in 1988 for the role of the tempestuous opera diva Carlotta Giudicelli in The Phantom of the Opera, then again in 2012 for her performance as the high-flying Duchess Estonia Dulworth in Nice Work If You Can Get It. She has also twice received the Theater LA Ovation Award; for her work as Emma Goldman in Ragtime, and as the melodically challenged Florence Foster Jenkins in Souvenir, two roles she originated on Broadway. She has sung with symphony orchestras throughout the US and Europe, and twice at the White House. She is also the voice of Kinsey Millhone in the Sue Grafton Alphabet Mystery Series for Random House Audio. (Bio courtesy of Broadway.com)
