Marin Mazzie, a three-time Tony-nominated Broadway star, died Thursday at her home in New York City following a three-year battle with ovarian cancer.

Three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie has been heard in numerous country's major symphony halls, cabaret and concert venues, and has been seen starring in some of the most memorable musicals on the Broadway stage and in London's West End.

She and her husband, Jason Danieley, also served as honorary chairs of the Coronado Performing Arts Center Restoration Project. She earned her first Tony nomination nine years later for her performance as Clara in Passion, and her second in 1998 as Mother in Ragtime. After a year, she returned to Broadway to replace Kelli O'Hara in "The King and I".

She was born in Rockford October 9, 1960. Mazzie made her NY stage debut in the 1983 revival of Frank Loesser's musical "Where's Charley?". While previously appearing in an Off-Broadway production of Trojan Women: A Love Story, she met and fell in love with fellow actor Jason Danieley.

Mazzie is survived by her mother Donna Mazzie, brother Mark Mazzie and her husband. Her father, Jack Mazzie, was a television station general manager. They later released an album of these songs, Opposite You, on the P.S. Classics label. She had taken on the role in developmental presentations, and following industry speculation over who would lead the show's Broadway bow (with several stage and screen stars reportedly in the mix), Ms. Mazzie ultimately came out on top, playing the charismatic stage diva who casts a spell on a young playwright while plotting her big comeback.

Other Broadway credits included: ENRON, MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT (also West End), PASSION (Tony nom.), MAN OF LA MANCHA, INTO THE WOODS, BIG RIVER, and OUT OF THIS WORLD and KISMET (both at Encores!). They had planned to unveil a new show, Heart to Heart, in NY this past June, but were forced to cancel due to Mazzie's health.

On TV, Mazzie had a recurring role as Kathy Halverson in the CBS sitcom Still Standing (2003-2006).
