Jan Levinson Moves From Scranton to ‘Chicago’

Renate Aller's Seascape 8 (2006)

We've called Jan on The Office some not-nice names in the past (witch, evil, monster, etc.), but we hold no real grudge against Melora Hardin, the actress who plays her. So we were quite excited to receive a press release today informing us of her continued employment: "Melora Hardin, star of the hit NBC comedy The Office, will make her Broadway stage debut this winter as fame-hungry murderess Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning smash hit musical Chicago. Hardin will play a seven-week limited engagement beginning Monday, December 29." Break a leg, Melora, and good luck with the singing! We know you've been practicing.
