Joanne Woodward on Playhouse Renovation: “I Hope the Ghosts Return”

When the Westport Country Playhouse closes this season and begins a major renovation, Joanne Woodward worries about the ghosts.

The Oscar-winning Westporter, who is the theaters artistic director, told the Hartford Courant:  “All the memories, the ghosts. I hope the ghosts don’t get lost. I hope they know we want them to return.”

The newspaper noted that as the playhouse puts on a new face in time to celebrate its 75th anniversary in two years and if ghosts of actors from productions past indeed hover in the wings of historic theaters, ғthen the playhouse abounds with celebrated spirits.

Deceased performers who graced its boards include Eva LeGallienne, Helen Hayes, Henry Fonda, Ethel Barrymore, Tyrone Power, Paul Robeson, Gene Kelly, Claudette Colbert, Shirley Booth and scores more.Ӕ
