Robert A. Schanke (au); May Sarton (fr). Eva Le Gallienne rivaled Helen Hayes for the crown of First Lady of the American Theatre. Among other accolades, in 1986 Ronald Reagan awarded her the National Medal of the Arts. Walter Kerr said she was the epitome of stardom. Yet very little has been published about Eva Le Gallienne, despite her many great accomplishments as an actress & as the founding & maintaining force behind the first civic repertory theatre in the U.S. This book makes the first major contribution toward the correction of this oversight. It looks at not only her public but also her private life, examining her lesbianism & how it played a part in the struggles, defeats, & triumphs that combined to inspire her greatness. Lambda Literary Award Finalist. B&W photos.
