She was also renowned for her classical and contemporary stage work, having received five Tony Awards for Best Actress in a Play, and for being involved in screen adaptations of the plays she appeared in; she reprised her role in the 1950 play The Member of the Wedding in the 1952 film of the same name, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress; and she won her first Tony Award for her role in the original 1951 production of I Am a Camera, which she subsequently reprised in the 1955 film version.
