Law & Order is a great video record of theater performers. Who have you seen on the show that has theater credits?

Obviously Jerry Orbach, S. Epatha Merkerson and Sam Waterston.

An episode I saw last night had
Jere Shea
Charlotte Moore
Frances Sternhagen
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Absolutely too many to list. I'm sure it's in the thousands. Just open up a Playbill, look at the bios, and half of them have done it.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

According to Chris Sieber's bio, everyone BUT him.

Sutton Foster, Bryce Rhyness, J. Robert Spencer, Ilana Levine, Nikki M. James

Those are just off the top of my head. I seriously see someone from the stage every time I watch.

There are several threads about this here already. I know the search engine here isn't the best, but if you're really curious (and have more time than I do right now), give that a try. I seem to remember some of them were quite long and informative. Off the top of my head, Michael Mulharen, Judith Light, and Susan Blackwell all had semi-recurring roles as judges. Bebe Neuwirth had a spin-off (Trial By Jury?) that failed pretty quickly.

Raul Esparza has played 2 different roles, Michael Berresse at least 3. Will Chase has done at least one.

Christine Baranski played a ruthless defense attorney in at least two episodes.

One of my earliest memories of Allison Janney was as a reluctant witness in an episode in the first couple of seasons.

Bernadette has been on a few times, too, also playing a defense attorney.

Roger Bart played a criminal.

I may be getting L&O and L&O: SVU mixed up, though.

Elaine Stritch played a defense lawyer for some stay at home middle class prostitutes.


Stritch's character, Lainie Stieglitz, appeared in at least two episodes. She won an Emmy for one of her appearances.

Patti appeared once, as a defense attorney.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

Sara Ramirez played two different characters on SVU.

Sieber did a skit at Don't Quit Your Night Job in which he practices for his L&O audition. Apparently, it wasn't that he'd never auditioned. He just never got cast.
Pretty pretty please don't you ever ever feel like you're less than f**ckin' perfect!
