Tony Award-winning actress Judith Ivey was already well on her way to becoming one of the brightest stars on Broadway by the time she launched a prolific career in film and on television. Earning her professional stripes in the thriving theater community of Chicago in the mid-1970s, she soon took her act to Broadway, where she won her first Tony for her performance in a production of "Steaming" in 1983. At the same time, Ivey began appearing in a string of feature film and television projects that included "The Lonely Guy" (1984) opposite Steve Martin, "The Long Hot Summer" (NBC, 1985) with Don Johnson, and "Compromising Positions" (1985), alongside Susan Sarandon. Over the years, Ivey maintained a busy schedule that include work on stage and in film and TV, including a lauded performance on Broadway in "The Glass Menagerie," "The Devil's Advocate" (1997) and "Rose Red" (ABC, 2002). Truly an actor's actor, Ivey gracefully took on roles of every cultural background and age range, and in virtually every medium throughout an inarguably impressive career.
