Allison Janney is one of those actors who is seemingly everywhere, at any given point in time. Turn on your television (for those who still own such things) and there she is as Bonnie Plunkett, one half of a recovering alcoholic mother-daughter duo in Chuck Lorre’s CBS sitcom Mom, recently picked up for a fifth season. Tune to Samantha Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and there she is reprising her role as iconic press secretary C.J. Cregg in The West Wing, an early Aughts show that many turn to now for some consolation away from our current political mess. And these days, Janney is treading the floorboards of the Ethel Barrymore Theater as the upwardly mobile matriarch Ouisa Kittredge in the current Tony-nominated revival of John Guare’s 1990 play Six Degrees of Separation.

Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Allison Janney, Josh Groban, Daniel Radcliffe, Sally Field and Corey Hawkins are among the actors nominated for the performance trophy at the 2017 Drama League Awards, on a long list of nominees that includes a number of potential Tony Awards contenders.

The Drama Leagues are part of the annual onslaught of theater-season awards that jostle for attention prior to the Tonys. They can often serve as a gauge for which titles are drawing awards heat, but as a prognostication tool, the Drama Leagues aren’t terribly helpful, given the high number of nominees in each of four production categories and the one acting category. There are nearly 50 acting nominees, for example.

Allison Janney spiralled, cranelike, up the ramp of the Guggenheim Museum. She stopped in front of a Kandinsky—“Black Lines” (1913), a jumble of Technicolor splotches—and gasped. “My gosh, that’s so beautiful,” she said. She was wearing chunky glasses and a dark blazer over a leopard-print blouse. “I felt an energy go through my chest.” It was her day off from “Six Degrees of Separation,” a Broadway revival of the 1990 John Guare play. Janney plays the wife of a Manhattan art dealer whose life is upended by a young con artist claiming to be the son of Sidney Poitier. “One of the things that Paul, the con man, learns about the couple is that they have a double-sided Kandinsky in their apartment,” Janney said. “One side is chaos and one is order. And my character, Ouisa, realizes what a chaotic state she’s in internally.”
