She attended Waynflete School

before enrolling in the College of William & Mary. While at William and Mary, she performed with the William and Mary Theater in many productions directed by long-time Professor Howard Scammon. In the summer of 1958, she played one of the leads in The Common Glory, an outdoor drama written by Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Paul Green and staged at an amphitheater on campus. Upon her graduation from William and Mary,[3] she had already received her Actors' Equity Association
Actors' Equity Association
card. She was a member of the Compass Players
Compass Players
in the late 1950s.[4] By the early 1960s, Lavin had appeared in several Broadway shows and appeared on the 1966 cast recordings of The Mad Show performing Stephen Sondheim's "The Boy From...". From It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman, one of her numbers, "You've Got Possibilities", was the album's best-received song and was called "The one memorable song...flirty, syncopated" by the Dallas Observer.[5] Career[edit] Television and film[edit] In 1967, Lavin made an appearance as Gloria Thorpe in a television version of the musical Damn Yankees
Damn Yankees
with Phil Silvers.[6] In 1969, Lavin married actor Ron Leibman,[7] and by 1973 the couple had arrived in Hollywood, California. After various guest appearances on episodic television series such as The Nurses, Rhoda, Harry O
Harry O
and Kaz,[1] Lavin landed a recurring role as Detective Janice Wentworth on Barney Miller during the first and second seasons (1975–1976).[8] She left Barney Miller
Barney Miller
to star in the lead role in Alice. The show was a popular hit for CBS
CBS
and ran from 1976 to 1985.[1] The series was based on the Martin Scorsese-directed Ellen Burstyn
Ellen Burstyn
film Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.[9] Lavin portrayed Alice Hyatt, a waitress and singer, the character that Burstyn had played. Lavin performed the series' theme song, "There's a New Girl in Town," which was written by David Shire
David Shire
and Alan and Marilyn Bergman and was updated for each of the first six seasons. During the series' nine-season run, Lavin earned two Golden Globe Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award nomination,[10] and gained experience directing, especially during the later seasons. Lavin also played a dual role in Alice, as Debbie Walden, the wizened and former landlady of the character Vera Louise Gorman-Novak.[11] Lavin also made numerous television appearances outside of Alice, including hosting her own holiday special for CBS, Linda in Wonderland (1980).[1] She acted in two sitcoms, Room for Two (1992–93)[11] and 1998's Conrad Bloom.[12] In Room for Two, she played a mother who moved in with her daughter, played by Patricia Heaton, who has a show on a local television station. The daughter gives Lavin's character her own segment, called Just a Thought, at the end of her program.[13][14] After working in theater for many years, Lavin was cast in the NBC television sitcom Sean Saves the World
Sean Saves the World
(2013–14) playing Sean Hayes' pushy, meddling mother Lorna. The Los Angeles Times interviewer noted: "A highlight of the show is the wonderful chemistry between Lavin and Hayes, who exchange repartee and quips with breezy ease. And the cast seems smitten with her."[15] The show has been cancelled. She made numerous television guest appearances, including roles on The Muppet Show (1979), Law & Order: Criminal Intent, The O.C., Touched by an Angel
Touched by an Angel
(1999)[1] and HBO's The Sopranos

alongside Mark Feuerstein
Mark Feuerstein
and Elliott Gould. A native of Portland, Maine, Lavin caught up with Portland Magazine in their Winterguide 2018 issue about her return to CBS
CBS
stating, “Like 'Alice', '9JKL' deals with family relationships–except it’s a more sophisticated and edgier show. The people are more privileged and on a higher economic level than Alice. I love to go to work every day. I feel very grateful and fortunate for this role, the quality of work and good people at this stage of my life. Fun and creative are the operative words for me. I’m very committed to participating in projects where I can bring and exchange those qualities with like-minded people.” [21] Theatre[edit] Lavin began her career with Broadway appearances in the musical A Family Affair (1962)[22] and plays such as The Riot Act (1963)[23] and Carl Reiner's Something Different (1967).[24] In his New York Times review of John Guare's two one-act plays, Cop-Out (1969), Clive Barnes wrote: "Miss Lavin...carries versatility almost to the point of paranoia, and camps up a storm."[25] She "arrived at showbiz stardom with a featured role" in the musical It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman
It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman
(1966).[26][27] She received her first Tony Award
Tony Award
nomination in 1970, for her role in the Neil Simon
Neil Simon
play, Last of the Red Hot Lovers (1969). Clive Barnes, in his review for The New York Times, wrote: "Linda Lavin, eyebrows, [sic] flaunting like telegraphed messages, mouth twitching and pouting, voice as dry as thunder and with a cough like electric static, is beautiful as Elaine, the sex cat feeling coolly kittenish and looking for a safe tin roof."[23][28] Lavin's last Broadway credit before she moved to Hollywood
Hollywood
was in Paul Sills' Story Theatre in 1971.[29] In her early years, Lavin also appeared in numerous Off-Broadway productions, including the revueWet Paint (1965),[30] the musical The Mad Show (1966)[31] and Little Murders
Little Murders
(1969). Lavin won the Theatre World Award for Wet Paint[32] and a Drama Desk Award for Little Murders.[33][34] After more than a decade away, appearing on television, Lavin returned to the Broadway stage in 1987, winning a Tony Award
Tony Award
for Best Actress in a Play[35] and her second Drama Desk Award for her role as Kate in Simon's play Broadway Bound. Frank Rich, in his New York Times
New York Times
review, wrote: "One only wishes that Ms. Lavin, whose touching performance is of the same high integrity as the writing, could stay in the role forever."[36] Theatre critic Charles McNulty wrote of her performance that it "is widely considered one of the most memorable in contemporary Broadway history, winning not just awards but praise approaching the level of myth. The distinguished theater critic Gordon Rogoff, extolling 'the power available only to an actor at the height of her own command of detail,' went so far as to describe Lavin's portrayal as 'one of those textbook lessons in great acting...' "[37] She then starred on Broadway in Gypsy as Mama Rose Hovick, replacing Tyne Daly
Tyne Daly
in July 1990.[38] June Havoc
June Havoc
saw Lavin's performance in Gypsy and sent Lavin a photo of Havoc's mother, the real Rose Hovick, with a note of appreciation for Lavin's particular portrayal of the character.[39] Subsequent Broadway roles included The Sisters Rosensweig, as a replacement Gorgeous Teitelbaum starting in September 1993[40] and Mrs. Van Daan in The Diary of Anne Frank (1997–1998), opposite Natalie Portman, for which she garnered a Tony nomination as Featured Actress in a Play.[29][41] In 1995 she appeared in the Off-Broadway Death-Defying Acts, which consists of three one-act plays; Lavin performed in the Elaine May
Elaine May
("Hotline") and Woody Allen
Woody Allen
plays ("Central Park West").[42] She was nominated for a Drama Desk Award (Outstanding Actress – Play)[43] and won an Obie Award (Performance)[44] and the Lucille Lortel Award. She also directed theater during this period. She played Marjorie in The Tale of the Allergist's Wife (2000–2001), co-starring Tony Roberts and Michele Lee, for which she was nominated for a Tony Award, Leading Actress in a Play, and Drama Desk Award,[45] and "nanny" for Helen (young Carol Burnett, played by Sara Niemietz and Donna Lynne Champlin) in Hollywood

Arms in Chicago and on Broadway in 2002.[46] In 2010, Lavin appeared as Ruth Steiner in a Broadway revival of the play Collected Stories,[47] reprising her role for a PBS

production of the play,[48] and received a fifth Tony nomination for the role. She appeared in the new play by Jon Robin Baitz, Other Desert Cities, Off-Broadway at the Mitzi Newhouse Theater (Lincoln Center) beginning in previews in December 2010, closing February 27, 2011.[49] Lavin was featured in the Kennedy Center
Kennedy Center
(Washington, DC) production of the musical Follies, from May 2011 to June 2011, as Hattie Walker.[50] She appeared in the premiere of the Nicky Silver play The Lyons at the Off-Broadway Vineyard Theatre, beginning in September 2011, through November 11.[51] Ben Brantley, The New York Times
New York Times
reviewer, commented: "Watching Ms. Lavin, I found myself thinking of Nora from Ibsen's Doll's House – well, a pursed-lipped, lemony-sour, older Nora in pseudo-Chanel, one who's never at a loss for what to say and when to say it. Rita may be a little behind schedule in discovering herself, but no one can fault the hair-trigger timing of the actress playing her or the surprising dimensions she finds within one-liners."[52] She reprised her role in the Broadway production, which opened at the Cort Theatre on April 23, 2012 and closed on July 1, 2012.[53][54] Lavin appeared in the new Nicky Silver play Too Much Sun, which opened Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre
Vineyard Theatre
on May 18, 2014. Ben Brantley, in his review for The New York Times
New York Times
wrote: "And it's an unconditional treat to witness an actress like Ms. Lavin tuned so precisely into the writer's wavelength that script and performance become a marriage of true minds."[55] Lavin appeared in 2015/16 on Broadway at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in a Manhattan Theatre Club production of Richard Greenberg's Our Mother's Brief Affair.[56] In January 2017, Lavin appeared in New York City
New York City
Opera's production of Leonard Bernstein's Candide at the Rose Theatre at Lincoln Center
Lincoln Center
in the role of The Old Lady.[57] Cabaret
Cabaret
and recording[edit] Lavin has appeared in cabaret and concert performances.[58] In 2005 she appeared at the Empire Plush Room in San Francisco, accompanied by Billy Stritch[59] and her husband, Steve Bakunas. The talkinbroadway reviewer summed up her performance: " Linda Lavin
Linda Lavin
is funny, warm and full of personality."[60] In April 2006 she performed at Birdland (New York) "with her critically acclaimed cabaret act The Song Remembers When", with Billy Stritch.[61] She performed with the Wilmington Symphony (Wilmington, North Carolina) in March 2012.[62] Her recording, Possibilities was released by Ghostlight Records in 2012. Steven Suskin wrote: "There is still that sweet, friendly sound of long ago (and 'sweet' and 'friendly' are not words you'd use to describe Lavin-the-actress)."[63] Personal life[edit]

Lavin and husband Steve Bakunas at the Kennedy Center, June 19, 2011

Lavin has been married three times. Her first marriage to Ron Leibman ended in divorce in 1980. Her second marriage to Kip Niven (de), whom she met on the set of Alice, ended in a bitter divorce in 1992.[64] While Lavin has no biological children, she was stepmother to the children of her second husband, and is stepmother to those of her third and current husband, artist/musician Steve Bakunas, whom she married in 2005.[65] The couple had resided in Wilmington, North Carolina[50] where they were committed community members working together to rehabilitate impoverished neighborhoods including renovating many homes, donating a park to the city and creating a community theatre, the Red Barn Studio. In 1997, Lavin founded The Linda Lavin
Linda Lavin
Arts Foundation in Wilmington, "to promote and foster the advancement of the performing and visual arts, with special emphasis on arts in education. Her foundation has created a theater program called Girl Friends, whose purpose is to raise the self-esteem of at-risk teenage girls of the inner city."[20] In Wilmington, she was a stage director. One of her directorial credits was a 1998 production of William Shakespeare's As You Like It, updated to a Brazilian jazz style. In both Wilmington and New York she teaches master classes in acting and singing.[20] In September 2012 Lavin announced that she intended to sell her home in Wilmington and return to New York City.[66] Lavin and Bakunas have lived in New York City
