She has been a 5 time Tony Award nominee, won 2 Drama Desk Awards.

Jan Maxwell made her Broadway debut in 1989.
She was born in Fargo, ND on 20 Nov 1956.

She is married to Robert Emmet Lunney and they have son.

She was the Broadway version of "City Of Angeles" One of my favorite movies.

She received her first Tony nomination in 2005 for the musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Her other nominations were for Coram Boy in 2007, Lend Me A Tenor and The Royal Family both in 2010, and Follies in 2012. Her nominations in two separate categories in 2010, made her only the fourth actress to achieve two nominations in a single year. Her 2012 nomination for "Follies" made her only the second actress to receive a Tony nomination in all four acting categories. Her other Broadway credits include, Dancing At Luqhnasa(1992), A Dolls House (1997), The Sound Of Music (1998) and The Dinner Party (2001).

What a joy this little lady is and what a long list of achievements. I am bursting with pride that a fellow North Dakotan as such talent. I am so please to see she will be doing more in the future.
