One of the All Time Greats Passes

My favorite actor passed away Friday night. I was lucky to see him when Mr. Newman returned to Broadway for the last time in 2002, as the Stage Manager in a revival of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” The performance was nominated for a Tony Award and when the play was broadcast on PBS in 2003, he won an Emmy. It was a great play. There is no one like Paul Newman. As the NY Times said, “he acted in more than 65 movies over more than 50 years, drawing on a physical grace, unassuming intelligence and good humor that made it all seem effortless.”
