WATCH NOW! Zooming in on the Tony Nominees: Glenda Jackson

Glenda on sharing the stage with other women: "The major difference that I've experienced [in this role] is the pleasure and the privilege of working with other actresses. Usually there is only one good woman's part, and if you've got it then there's nobody else around. To have the time to work with actresses of this caliber- Laurie and Alison- is such a treat."
