Broadway Virtuoso to Host ONU Master Class
Tony Award-winning actress Victoria Clark will present a master class for Ohio Northern University theatre, musical theatre and music students on Saturday, Oct. 4, from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Stambaugh Studio Theatre.
Clark received a 2005 Tony for "Best Leading Actress in a Musical" for her performance as domineering mother Margaret Johnson in "The Light in the Piazza." She garnered rave reviews for her virtuoso performance, including a 2005 Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award.
A 1982 graduate of Yale University, Clark made her Broadway debut in 1985 in "Sunday in the Park with George." She has been a staple on Broadway ever since, with roles in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" with Matthew Broderick and Megan Mullally, director Jerry Zaks' Tony Award-winning revival of "Guys and Dolls," "Cabaret," and the City Center Encores' production of "Bye, Bye Birdie."
Clark's film credits include "Cradle Will Rock" and "The Happening." She has contributed her vocal talents to animated feature films like "Aladdin," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Beauty and the Beast."
In addition to stage work, Clark is an accomplished director, vocal coach and solo artist. Her debut solo album, "Fifteen Seconds of Grace," was released last November.
