Awwwww - a great light flickers out....

Just learned that Uta Hagen - the Uta Hagen - died at 84. My very first theatre experience, as a wee lad of 12, was at HB Studio, the legendary acting school founded by Hagen and her husband Herbert Berghof in Greenwich Village. I saw many plays there, especially by Donna De Mateo (A Horse Story, The Flip Side, Paradise Kid - Donna's daughter is on the Sopranos), and once sat in front of the late NY Times movie critic Vincent Canby watching three of his own one-act plays (which he overhead me criticize - taste of his own medicine : - ))
