New York-- --Actress Megan Lawrence is wearing a hip pink Indian dress over white cotton pants. Her lips, however, sport retro red lipstick, the same shade as her perfectly manicured nails.
Her lips and nails say "Gladys Hotchkiss," the 1950s secretary she portrays in the hit Broadway revival of The Pajama Game. The rest of her getup -- which includes fuzzy animal slippers -- is pure Megan Lawrence. Her husband, also a Broadway actor, describes her as "a college-dropout hippie who made good."
Tune in The 60th annual Tony Awards will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall, 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday, on CBS (WJZ-Channel 13).
