Murney has garnered critical and popular acclaim since starring as Queenie in the 2000 world premiere of Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party, a role that earned her a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. Her other stage credits include the Broadway production of Lennon, as well as the Manhattan Theatre Club's productions of A Class Act and Time and Again, for which she received a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress. For the past six months, Murney has been starring as Elphaba in the national tour of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Wicked.
