Emmy nominee and Tony Award winner Jane Krakowski stars as Jenna Maroney, the star of "The Girlie Show," in NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning "30 Rock."

She recently debuted her cabaret show to sold out audiences at the Kennedy Center in DC and Feinstein's in NYC. In 2009, the New Jersey born actress was honored with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Jenna Maroney.
Often compared to Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland, Linda Eder first captured public attention with her unprecedented 12- week winning streak on the TV show Star Search. The success expanded her fan base nationally and led to a leading role as Lucy Harris in the 1990 Broadway- bound musical Jekyll & Hyde. The mainstay of Eder's career, however, remains the concert stage.
Over the years, passionate fans across the country have packed concert venues from The Greek Theater in Los Angeles to New York's Radio City Music Hall, The Gershwin Theater, The Palace Theater and four sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall.

Her PS Classics release A Long and Winding Road was praised by The New York Times as "a captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early ‘70s. Ms. McGovern is blessed with a vocal technique second to none." Other critically acclaimed musical tributes include her Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Marilyn and Alan Bergman CDs and more.

Her other Broadway credits include Lloyd Webber's Song and Dance and the role of "Margaret White" in the cult musical Carrie.

Marilyn Maye was dubbed "Super Singer" by the late Johnny Carson. Ella Fitzgerald called her "the greatest white female singer in the world." The Houston Chronicle termed her "a National Treasure." Add 76 appearances on "The Tonight Show," a Grammy Award nomination in the mid-1960s as Best New Artist, a bevy of awards reflecting her showmanship, and you have an illustrious singing career that is still going strong after a lifetime spent entertaining audiences.
She also appeared with Mr. Carson in a number of large venue concerts, sang with the Phoenix Symphony under the baton of Doc Severinsen and, more recently, was the featured singer with both the Philadelphia Pops Orchestra and the Florida Symphony Orchestra at the behest of Peter Nero, who was the pops conductor.

She accepted the 2008 Critics Nightlife Award as Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist at New York's Town Hall, where she closed the show to a standing ovation. She appeared in a sold-out concert at the Annenberg Theater in Palm Springs, followed by a guest appearance at the Aids Project Los Angeles benefit held at the Wilshire Theater in Beverly Hills.
