For more than a decade, Joanna Gleason was one of Broadway's brightest lights. In 1988, she was the toast of the town, winning the Tony Award for best actress in a musical for Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods." But not even Gleason could save "Nick and Nora," the troubled musical adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's "The Thin Man." When the expensive production flopped early last year, Gleason was suddenly unemployed and uncertain about her future.

They will resume the roles they created while the Tony Award-winning Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical is taped for PBS' "American Playhouse."
