It’s so great to catch up with Tony Award Winner and two-time Emmy nominee Cady Huffman! Cady was my special guest at BroadwayCon 2020 this past January. We had so much fun that day and not enough time, so I’m bringing her back for an extended conversation.
We had a blast discussing Broadway, creating her critically acclaimed digital series, Cady Did, and being nominated twice for an Emmy Award for her role as “Lisa” in Kevin Spirtas and Michael Slade’s After Forever. Cady also reveals some secrets about her life that I didn’t even know!

More on Cady:
Cady is perhaps best known for her Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award winning performance as “Ulla” in The Producers on Broadway opposite Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. This led to her unforgettable recurring role on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm where she almost became Larry David’s 10th anniversary present. This success also brought her to the Food Network’s kitchen stadium where she judged for 10 consecutive seasons on Iron Chef America.
Cady’s other Broadway credits are her Tony-nominated performance as Ziegfeld’s Favorite in THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIES, her Outer Critics Circle nominated performance in THE NANCE, the original production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, CHICAGO, STEEL PIER, DAME EDNA: THE ROYAL TOUR, and Bob Fosse’s last original musical BIG DEAL. She has had several guest starring appearances on television, including recurring roles on The Good Wife and Blue Bloods, Younger, Madam Secretary, Master of None, Difficult People, Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: CI, Law & Order: Trial By Jury, Frasier and Mad About You. She even showed up on Daytime’s One Life To Live as the 2nd Dr. Paige Miller.
Cady was nominated for Daytime Emmy Awards two years in a row (2019 & 2020) for her work on the digital series AFTER FOREVER, for which she won the 2018 IAWT Award. She created and stars in her own digital series titled CADY DID on YouTube. She directed THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME at Weathervane Theater, summer 2019 and most recently directed the Jerry Herman tribute for the well-known series LYRICS & LYRICISTS at 92Y. She is most grateful for the many ups and downs of life which have taught her “Don’t take it personally” and “Love is all there is.” She is a proud union member of 37 years. @CadyHuffman on FB, Instagram and Twitter.
