Product Description

Mary Louise Wilson became a star at age 60, portraying legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland in her smash one-woman play Full Gallop. But before and since, her life and her career - including the Tony Award® for her portrayal of Big Edie in Grey Gardens - have been enviably celebrated and varied. She moved to New York City in the late 1950s and rubbed shoulders with every famous person of that era and since. In My First Hundred Years in Show Business, Ms. Wilson has crafted a work that is at once a teeming social history of the New York theatre scene and a thoroughly revealing and entertaining memoir of the life of an extraordinary woman and actor. As delicious as the anecdotes are, the heart of this book is in its unblinkingly honest depiction of the life of a working actor. Hardcover
