Broadway Ladies: Ms. June 2014: Jessie Mueller

Ms. June 2014
Jessie Mueller

WHY SHE'S MS. BROADWAY: DUH!  It's been a long time coming... after a very successful career in Chicago, she made her Broadway debut (and earned her first Tony nomination) in On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, where she wowed the critics, who otherwise dismissed the show.  Then she played the exotic Helena Landless in the acclaimed revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, followed by a replacement stint in Nice Work If You Can Get It. In between all of that she appeared in a concert version of Carousel, and the Shakespeare In The Park revival of Into the Woods.  But to date, she will be remembered for her Tony-winning star turn as Carole King in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.  The consummate stage actress - at home in children's theatre, doing Shakespeare, or in musicals in the ensemble, supporting roles or the leading actress - she has everything it takes to be Ms. Broadway for today AND tomorrow!

TONY TIME!



FUN FACTS:

  • She was born on February 20 in Evanston, Illinois.
  • Everyone in her immediate family is in "the biz" - Mom, Dad and siblings Andrew, Matt and Abby (she's in Kinky Boots)!
  • She's a 2005 graduate of Syracuse University.
  • She's won two Joseph Jefferson Awards for her work in Chicago-area theatre (Carousel and She Loves Me), and she was named 2011 Actor of the Year by the Chicago Tribune!
  • When she was in Henry IV with the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, the company went to The Swan Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon!
