During her five year run on that show, she received critical acclaim and two Emmy nominations for her creation of many memorable characters.

She starred with Susan Saint James for five years on the popular television series Kate and Allie, twice earning the Emmy Award as Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of affable divorcee Allie Lowell. Jane went on to a successful six-year run as Dr. Mary Albright on the NBC hit 3rd Rock From the Sun.

She was a member of the improvisational theater group The Proposition for four years before going on a national tour with a number of plays, including the comedy Last of the Red Hot Lovers. She appeared on Broadway with Joanne Woodward as Prossie in George Bernard Shaw's Candida, and reprised the role on television. Her other stage credits credits include the off-Broadway musical revue Pretzels, which she co-wrote, and several appearances in A.R. Gurney's Love Letters. Most recently she appeared in the Westport Country Playhouse production of Our Town, which also played on Broadway to a sold-out run in late 2002 with Jane reprising her role.
