A veteran of television, stage and film, Martin recently won the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for her showstopping performance in the Broadway revival of "Pippin." Her theater credits include "My Favorite Year" at Lincoln Center (Tony, Drama Desk and Theater World Awards), Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein" (Tony, Drama Desk nominations), "Exit the King" (Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle nominations) and the Toronto production of "Godspell," in which she co-starred with Victor Garber and "SCTV" alumni Martin Short, Eugene Levy and Dave Thomas.
