Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her luminous portrayal of mother Margaret Johnson in The Light in the Piazza on Broadway, Victoria Clark is a favorite among audiences and critics. The New York Times’ Ben Brantley called Clark’s work in Piazza “the best musical performance by an actress this season.”
Equally at home on Broadway, in film, television, and on the concert stage, she starred as Mother Superior in the original cast of the hit Broadway musical Sister Act, garnered nominations for Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle awards, and she received the Drama League honor last year. She was among an elite group of featured performers in “Stephen Sondheim: The Birthday Concert held at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall,” televised on PBS.
Recently, she performed with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall. Ms. Clark’s recordings include her debut solo album, Fifteen Seconds of Grace, the original cast albums of The Light in the Piazza, Titanic, A Grand Night for Singing, and Far From the Madding Crowd; the new Broadway cast albums of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Guys and Dolls; The Scarlet Pimpernel with Linda Eder; the soundtrack for Cradle Will Rock, and soundtracks of numerous Disney animated musicals.
Ms. Clark recently starred in the exclusive Los Angeles engagement of the Kennedy Center’s critically acclaimed Broadway production of Follies, at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre. She is currently in a workshop of the new Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella as the Fairy Godmother.
