Other Broadway credits include On The 20th Century, Ragtime, The Tony-winning best musical The Drowsy Chaperone, and Roundabout's revival of 110 In the Shade. Mamie traveled the US as Elphaba on the first national tour of Wicked, as Judy in 9 To 5, and with the first national company of Legally Blonde. Most recently, she starred in the new Andrew Lloyd Webber retrospective Unmasked at Paper Mill Playhouse. Other regional credits include the new musicals Dave at Arena Stage and Life After at The Olde Globe, as well as roles at The Muny, Pittsburgh CLO, and Goodspeed Musicals.

Mamie is a sought after acting and musical theatre instructor and professional voice and audition coach, and lately spends a lot of time hiding out in her tiny home studio narrating audiobooks (What could be better than reading for a living?). She resides in the Pocono Mountains with her husband, Johnathan, and wonderpup, Cookie.
