The New York Times
for her role as Gladys Bumps in the Roundabout Theatre Company production of Pal Joey on Broadway. "...the ever-daring Ms. Plimpton exudes a been-there, frowzy sensuality that summons a host of hard-bitten dames from 1930s movie melodramas. Leading the nightclub act 'That Terrific Rainbow,' she has the period style down pat and a more than passable voice."[57] She received her third consecutive Tony nomination, for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. Plimpton appeared in the 2008 Entertainment Weekly
Entertainment Weekly
photo issue spread as one of "The Hardest Working Actors In Showbiz".

Plimpton said in the write-up, "I went to jury duty the other day, and somebody said, 'You always play drug addicts!'

The show premiered on September 21, 2010, receiving strong reviews for Plimpton and the pilot. The New York Times

Hobby Lobby
Burwell v. Hobby Lobby
and McCullen v. Coakley
McCullen v. Coakley
and revealing in part that she herself has had an abortion more than once.[65] She wrote that her purpose was "A) to contribute to the dismantling of an oppressive, artificial and unfair shaming of women who seek abortion care, B) make clear just how normal, common, and healthy a decision it is for the women who make it, and C) to encourage women who are part of this one third to be unashamed and come out of the abortion closet."[65] In September 2017, Plimpton created controversy when she again said she had multiple abortions, and said one she received at Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood
in Seattle was her "best one."[66] She has also advocated for LGBT rights causes. In a Twitter
