Julie White, FCLC ’85, won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play on Sunday, June 10, for her character, “Diane,” in Douglas Carter Beane's Hollywood satire, The Little Dog Laughed, at Broadway’s Cort Theater. In the show, White plays a ruthless Hollywood agent trying to keep a gay client in line and in the closet, a role that won her a rave review from The New York Times.

White, an English major at Fordham, previously appeared in a production of Wendy Wasserstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, The Heidi Chronicles. White had a supporting role on the ABC sitcom Grace Under Fire, and has had guest appearances on a number of television shows, including HBO's Six Feet Under, NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and ABC’s Desperate Housewives.
