Listen to the story.

It's not often that we have a guest who is both an accomplished Shakespearean actor and one of the co-stars of Goonies. But today is a good day. A great day, in fact, since she was nominated for a Tony award this morning. Martha Plimpton has gracefully sidestepped the pitfalls of early success - take note Lindsay - by working super hard at her craft. She's a member of the Steppenwolf theater company. And last year, she earned a Drama Desk award and her first Tony nomination for her work in Tom Stoppard's Coast of Utopia. Now she's on Broadway in the revival of Caryl Churchill's 1982 play, Top Girls. Martha Plimpton speaks with Faith Salie on Fair Game.
