Ruth Maleczech (1939-2013)

Kent : 1985

NYC : 2008

"legend" is a word too often tossd abt. but this actress was indeed a legend in the history of off-Broadway. she was one of the founders of Mabou Mines. when they came to Kent State I got to almost work with her in "Cold Harbor."  yes I was in the production but was part of the tableau sequences so had no real stage time with her.

the last time I saw her was at a Jean-Claude van Itallie seminar in which she appeard in a selection from his play "Bag Lady." she was mesmerizing.
