Happy Birthday Marian Seldes!

This is sad...I only recognize her from that small role she played in The Haunting. CLEARLY I have some homework to do...;)

Ash - Marian has had an amazing career. She's been in 100s of plays and movies. She's a writer - both fiction and on acting. She's a teacher - college including Julliard (among her students were Kevin Kline and Patti LuPone). She's a doyenne of the theatre and certainly its greatest champion. I fear it's unlikely that we'll see her in a production again, however she still does readings. Her voice is a miracle. I've been lucky to have only seen her in one play, Deuce, but I've seen her do a number of readings. She's also the kindest, loveliest soul you'll meet in the theatre and possibly New York City.
