Her personal history in song!

Linda Lavin was born in Portland, Maine, the daughter of an opera singer.  Her future as a consummate performer was foretold when, from her crib, she sang "God Bless America" before she could speak! 

She worked in nightclubs in New York's Greenwich Village before her big break in the chorus of her first Broadway musical "A Family Affair."  Her first leading role on Broadway was in 1965 in the musical "It's a Bird…It's a Plane…It's Superman."  One of her signature numbers in that show was "You've Got Possibilities," which is among the 12 tracks on her recently-released, first-ever CD, "Possibilities," featuring a mix of Broadway standards and cabaret songs, with musical arrangements by Billy Stritch and released by Ghostlight Records.

Beloved for her work on stage, film and TV, Linda Lavin is currently appearing on Broadway in "The Lyons" by Nicky Silver, earning some of the best reviews of her remarkable career. She previously appeared at the Kennedy Center in "Follies" and at Lincoln Center Theater in "Other Desert Cities" as well as "The Sisters Rosensweig" (Broadway) and "The New Century" (Drama Desk Award; Off-Broadway).  Her numerous Broadway credits include "Collected Stories" (Tony nomination), "Hollywood Arms," "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife" (Tony nomination), "The Diary of Anne Frank" (Tony nomination, Drama Desk Award), "Gypsy," "Broadway Bound" (Tony Award, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Helen Hayes awards), "The Last of the Red Hot Lovers" (Tony nomination), "It's a Bird…It's a Plane…It's Superman," and "A Family Affair."   Her off-Broadway credits include: "Cakewalk," "Death" (The Public); "The Mad Show," "Oh, Kay!" (Theatre World Award) and "Little Murders" (Outer Critics Circle Award).  She has appeared in regional theatres in "Finishing the Picture," "Collected Stories," "Doubt," "Rabbit Hole" and "Driving Miss Daisy."
 
Her film credits include "The Backup Plan," "The Muppets Take Manhattan," "See You in the Morning," "I Want to Go Home" and the soon-to-be-released "Wanderlust."  Ms. Lavin's television credits include "Alice," "Barney Miller", "Room for Two" and "Conrad Bloom" along with the TV films “The $5.20 an Hour Dream”, “A Matter of Life and Death”, “A Place to Call Home”, “Lena: My 100 Children”, “Best Friends for Life”, “The Ring” and “Collected Stories”.  Her cabaret performances include her own "Songs and Confessions of a One-time Waitress," and she has performed nationally at Birdland and The Metropolitan Room in New York as well as with the Wilmington Symphony.
