Nancy has been nominated for a Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical for her role as Gladys Hotchkiss in The Pajama Game at The Arena Stage in Washington, DC.
Nancy Anderson as Gladys Hotchkiss stops the show with the dance feature ‘Steam Heat’. I also enjoyed watching her get progressively more drunk as the Hernando’s ‘Hideaway’ scene with Rogan progressed. Her comedic timing is excellent.– Elliot Lanes, Broadway World
As the saucy secretary Gladys, Nancy Anderson leads a pair of chorus dancers through the Fosse-inspired ‘Steam Heat’, which plays out like a master class in musical theater dance (her drunken descent after ‘Hideaway’ also gives her the chance to show off her slapstick skills).– Missy Frederick, DC Theatre Scene.
