Michele Pawk (born November 16, 1961 in Butler, Pennsylvania) is an American actress and singer.
After attending Allegheny College and the College Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, she spent a year working in a musical revue at Disney World. In 1988, she made her Broadway debut in a shortlived musical entitled Mail, but it wasn't until 1992 that she made her mark with her performance in the Ira and George Gershwin-inspired production Crazy for You, for which she was nominated for a Drama Desk Award as Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical. From there she went on to two successful revivals - Chicago (1996) and Cabaret (1998) - and an original musical, Seussical (2000), based on the works of Dr. Suess.
In 2002, Pawk earned critical raves for her performance in Hollywood Arms, the Carrie Hamilton-Carol Burnett play adapted from Burnett's memoir, One More Time. Her portrayal of an alcoholic who dreams of success as a movie magazine writer, a character based on Burnett's mother, won her the Tony Award as Best Featured Actress in a Play.
Pawk's television credits include L.A. Law, The Golden Girls, and all three editions of the Law & Order franchise. She appeared in small roles in the films Jeffrey (1995) and Cradle Will Rock (1999).
She is married to actor John Dossett. They have one son, Jack, born in 2000.
