Tribute to Olympia Dukakis

ArtsPRunlimited, Inc
Tribute to Olympia Dukakis who died (5/1/21) at 89.
We worked together on a Brecht’s MOTHER COURAGE in Montclair. Olympia was a formidable MOTHER with the stirring score by Paul Dessau. Her Whole Theatre Company had moved into a vacant bank building on Bloomfield Ave.
Their work included Genet’s THE MAIDS and Tennessee Williams SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH all starring Olympia that were quite strong and moving. At one point she needed to return a script to an agent in Manhattan and I volunteered to do that for her.
Olympia was also interested in my play FANGS TO RICHES and wrote me a letter of recommendation. Her comments appear in AMERICAN PHANTASMAGORIA (Lulu Books 2020) as does FANGS TO RICHES.
Olympia Dukakis starred in more than 130 stage productions, as well as more than 60 films and 50 television series. She won her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1988 for her role in “Moonstruck” as Rose Castorini. She won a Golden Globe for the film as well, and received Emmy Award nominations for “Lucky Day” (1991), “More Tales of the City” (1998), and “Joan of Arc” (1999). She released an autobiography, “Ask Me Again Tomorrow: A Life in Progress,” in 2003. Last year, a feature-length documentary about her life, titled “Olympia,” was also released in the U.S.

Brilliant and breathtaking…. But we still have 4 months or years to go. I am exhausted and afraid in the “mean” time for all of the us(a) that still lays before us.

Djt radiates inadvertent psychological projection onto other people. He discloses his own inadequicies again and again. Shockingly they expose the real djt as a reflection of himself and not those whom he is attacking. His inner truth does come out in his harrangues.

My Irish cousins may (be) in The New York Times or Trifecta via Ireland and Staten Island.

Nice article on Mr. Quinn. Wonder if we’re related but my Grandfather died when my Father was 10 about 1928, so I’ll never know. My went back to work at AT&T earn extra money working nights on roller skates. I met a man at her wake in 1980, who knew my Grandfather. Nothing more than that. Reply 4 Recommend Share

You have got to explain working nights at AT&T on roller skates. That sounds too good to not hear more. Reply 3 Recommended Share

Much of this history appears in my books “organized labor” (Author House 2007)and a long Irish poem in Newark, Italy and me (2019 Lulu). Thanks for your interest and writing to me.

Ken you and me both, I’m imagining it though.

If you both buy a book I will supply more details.
After my Grandmother retired she also got free phone service in NYC from Ma Bell too.
BTW, I have Italian cousins named Costello too.

Great article. There may be ecological hope for us yet. New York always leads the way. NJ just paved over most of the Meadowlands unfortunately.

Performing Arts off Broadway then and (silence) now.

2021 marks the 40th anniversary of my debut with the American Premiere of Edward Bond’s play STONE in Soho (1981). This

was followed by Sophocles’ rarely seen THE WOMEN OF TRACHIS (1982–84) and a year later by the World Premiere of Daniel Gabriel’s SACCO & VANZETTI (1983–1995).

While working at Cultural Council Foundation (1983–86) we were invited on the roster of Soho Booking to promote our work. Soho Booking requested we film scenes from SACCO and the Sophocles.

We did so in a studio at St. Peters University. Both shows were reconfigured for that space and filmed in one long day.

In 2020, a donor for ArtsPR made a donation to help us transfer our archival VHS tapes to a DVD format.

While coping with in-house quarantine we submitted both to film Festival’s here and abroad. We were selected and won a Finalist award from Beyond The Curve International Film festival in Paris, France last month.

What about “the greater good’ as a haven and open to immigrants and a fair count of all as the Constitution requires ? Justice for all, and not the few in Century 21.
