Tributes: Julie Harris

Monday, August 26, 2013

When Julie Harris was asked, later in her life, what she would do today, if she learned that the world would end tomorrow, she replied, "I'd go to the theater."  The actress spent her life on the stage, becoming the most decorated performer in the history of Broadway for her roles in "The Member of the Wedding," "I Am a Camera," "Forty Carats," "The Last of Mrs. Lincoln," "The Belle of Amherst," and "The Gin Game."  She died at the age of 87.  We were lucky enough to have had her on our show.  And you can listen to her interview from 1996 below.
