LEND ME A TENOR’S twice Tony nominated Jan Maxwell featured on TDF.org






“Leading Role vs. Featured Role”

Dual Tony nominee Jan Maxwell reflects on the difference
Lead performance. Supporting performance. Leading Actress. Featured Actress. Come awards season, these distinctions get made all the time, and it’s easy to take them for granted.

But what do they mean, really? Are supporting roles and leading roles so different? Do they demand such dissimilar things from an actor that they should be considered separately when it’s time to hand out trophies?

Why not ask Jan Maxwell? At the 2010 Tony Awards, which will air live on CBS on Sunday night, she’s nominated for Best Actress in a Play (for last fall’s remount of The Royal Family) and for Best Featured Actress in a Play (for the current revival of Lend Me a Tenor.) As much as anyone who’s been on Broadway this season, she knows what it takes to craft a large role and a small one.
