We’ve Lost A Legend


Julie Harris

1925 – 2013

Julie Harris, renown star of Broadway, Movies and Television, passed away at the age of 87.  Her roles were many and diverse during her long career.  From playing a tomboy in “A Member of the Wedding” to Mrs. Lincoln, she handled all her acting roles with a quiet grace that mesmerized audiences throughout the decades.

The younger generation might remember her as the scheming southern belle in “Knots Landing” while others might reminisce about her role as Sally Bowles, in “I Am A Camera (Caberet was a adaptation)”

She won an unprecedented five Tony awards for her roles on stage and I’m sure the lights on Broadway will be dimmed now that she has left us.

Rest in Peace, Julie!
