Comments
Appeared in the original Broadway productions of "The Real Thing" and "Hurlyburly" simultaneously. In "Hurlyburly," the character Donna appears at the beginning of the first act, then again in the final scene. The play is over three hours long allowing Nixon time to perform in the much-shorter "The Real Thing" in between appearances. Interestingly, both productions were directed by Mike Nichols.

Best known to TV audiences as Miranda Hobbes on "Sex and the City."
