A Tony Award winner for her roles in Grey Gardens and 42nd Street, Christine Ebersole is one of Broadway's leading ladies. Her Broadway appearances include The Best Man, Dinner at Eight, and Steel Magnolias. She also portrayed opera singer Caterina Cavalieri in the Oscar-winning film Amadeus. The New York Times says Ebersole possesses an almost haunting singing ability, approaching her music "obsessed with feelings that run around her head so hard they somehow come out sung, clarion and unadorned, practically in spite of herself."
