Yes, it was autocorrect! And I think she was/is notable in Jewish theater, hence this revue and Indecent.

I remember those 1998 wins vividly ... that was one of the best Tony broadcasts of my lifetime. I was so excited by the musicals *and plays* and how they presented them. Bring back doing scenes from nominated plays! It's genuinely criminal that they don't anymore.

Since we're saying the names... here are the female nominees for Best Director of a Musical prior to Julie Taymor's win (who had been nominated the year before her win too)
#1 - 1965 Joan Littlewood - Oh What a Lovely War! (lost to Robbins for Fiddler, hard to beat that!)
#2 - 1978 Elizabeth Swados - Runaways (lost to Maltby Jr for Ain't Misbehavin ... I probably would have voted for Swados)
#3 - 1984 Vivian Matalon - The Tap Dance Kid (lost to Laurents for La Cage... I probably would have voted for Lapine for Sunday, but I didn't see TDK)
#4 - 1985 Barbara Damashek - Quilters (lost to Des McAnuff for Big River)
#5 - 1990 Susan H. Schulman - Sweeney Todd (lost to Tommy Tune for Grand Hotel, hard to beat that)
#6 & #7 - 1991 Graciela Daniele for Once On This Island & Eleanor Reissue for Those Were the Days (lost to Tommy Tune for The Will Rogers Follies... again hard to beat, but it would have been really deserved and fantastic if Graciela had won that year... especially since Tune had already won for Nine and Grand Hotel)
#8 - 1997 Julie Taymor for Juan Darien (lost to Walter Bobbie (aka Ann Reinking) for Chicago, again hard to beat especially with a relatively under the radar play like Juan Darien)
