  • Cat on a Hit Tin Roof  (BIG MAMA)

  • Born Yesterday  (MRS. HEDGES)


The day after Born Yesterday closed, the producer, Lloyd LaBrie, padlocked the theatre & dis- 

appeared with the box office proceeds without paying me or my colleagues the 3 weeks of 

salary owed. He left us stranded & we had to thumb our way back to N.Y.C. I knew then,  

I would not pursue a career as an actor if I could do it as a member of Actors' Equity Associa-

tion with the dignity & protections of the union contract. Consequently, when I was offered my 

1st Equity contract a year and a half later, I had the advantage of knowing exactly why I was 

joining the union & what I expected from the union.

  • Paths of Glory  (PROPRIETRESS)
The only female role in this play is so insignificant, no experienced actor was interested in doing it 
so I was cast. Since I was not yet a member of Equity, for me, it was a great credit. The impor-
tance of the role is documented in the newspaper review announcing my N.Y. theatre debut: 
". . . the all male cast (there is one girl for one moment)"  N.Y. World Telegram & Sun, Nov. 25, 1961.
