Program Description


Jean Stapleton was a character actress who created the slow-witted, big-hearted Edith Bunker on All in the Family, one of the most popular characters in television history. Never an ingénue or a leading lady, she was an accomplished theater actress with a few television credits when she rose to fame as Edith. She started her career in stock and touring companies before featured roles in Broadway musicals like Damn Yankees, Bells Are Ringing and Funny Girl and dramas like Ionesco’s Rhinoceros with Zero Mostel. This talk will pay tribute to the lady and her career, showing a first rate actress that could make us laugh and touch our hearts.
