She went on to play starring roles in over a half dozen Broadway shows, in her cabaret act and appearances in television and films. She appeared in the 1991 off-Broadway Kander and Ebb revue And The World Goes 'Round and the subsequent 10-month national tour the following year. In the 2006 Encores! presentation of Kismet at City Center, Mazzie received good notices for her performance: Mazzie steals the comic thunder with a delicious turn as the glamorous Slut of the Casbah (Lalume), lewdly checking out the tasty man-slaves and happily playing along with Hajj's trickery, simply because he's hot. Looking dynamite in a flashy gold Donatella-goes-Mesopotamian number and a soufflé of blond curls, Mazzie's campy delivery of "Not Since Nineveh" and the beyond-jaded "Bored" succeeds in briefly raising the temperature of the otherwise tepid brew. Awards Mazzie received Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her performance as Lilli/Katharine in the Broadway revival of Kiss Me, Kate. She later received an Olivier Award nomination for her West End debut in the same show.
Other awards include: Ragtime as Mother (Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Award nominations), and Passion as Clara (Tony nomination -- notable for its opening scene in which Mazzie was nude, in bed with Jere Shea).
