Judy Kaye, Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical for NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT
I'm doing pretty good! Although I just had an experience on the New Jersey Turnpike that put things into perspective for me. There was a terrible accident right in front of us! It definitely put things into perspective. I'm elated about all of this. I'm elated to be in the show and to have this marvelous cast surrounding me- to get to work with Kelli, and Michael, and Kathleen. It's all a wonderful gift as always. I happened to have turned on the TV this morning and there it was in front of me. It knew it was coming but I had forgotten they were today! I'm opening wonderful emails from friends and then I'm gonna go do this wonderful show that I'm in. It's been an esspecially great week for me because I just celebrated 25th wedding anniversary too!"
