Example text

Incidentally, everybody thinks I'm a New York director, but I moved from New York to California in 1955 after only directing about seven or eight shows in New York. Of about 125 shows I've done, about 110 of them were done from California. I suppose no-one really stops to think that we did all the Playhouse 90s and all of our Climax shows from California.

She has inspired me, encouraged me, and supported me. She has made it possible for me to have a lasting career.
