One of the most beloved and honored stage actresses of her generation, Murphy was honored with two Tony Awards for her spellbinding performance as Fosca in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Passion, and for her “resplendent, matchless” (New York Post) portrayal of Anna Leonowens in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic The King and I. For her hilarious comic tour de force as Ruth Sherwood in the Broadway revival of Wonderful Town, she received Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Astaire Awards, as well as a Tony nomination. That year, she was the recipient of the Drama League’s Outstanding Achievement For Musical Theater. In 2007, her mesmerizing performance as the Austrian chanteuse, Lotte Lenya, in Hal Prince’s production of LoveMusik, earned her Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle Awards, and another Tony nomination. She garnered yet another Tony Award nomination and rave reviews for her performance as a time shifting Yiddish Theater star during the Holocaust in Roundabout Theatre Company’s The People in the Picture. New York Magazine named Murphy as one of “Three Living Legends” of the New York Theater and awarded her one of their prestigious New York Awards. She was a member of the original cast of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, eventually succeeding Betty Buckley in the title role, and made her professional and Broadway debut in Neil Simon’s They’re Playing Our Song.
