Actress Cherry Jones received her first Tony Award nomination in 1991 and has won the award twice, for her roles in “Doubt” (2005) and “The Heiress” (1995). She discusses being cast as “single gals” and “warrior women,” and her tendency to work primarily with female playwrights because they create more interesting and stronger female characters. Ms. Jones also speaks of the importance of government funding of the arts.
