About Antoinette Perry:
Mary Antoinette Perry was an actress, director and co-founder of the American Theatre Wing. The Tony Awards are her namesake.
I had an interest, for as long as I could remember, in theater.
Why, when I was a child, I didn't say, as most children do, that I was going to become an actress. I felt that I was an actress and no one could have convinced me that I wasn't!
Should l go on playing bridge and dining, going in the same old monotonous circle? It's easy that way, but it's a sort of suicide, too.
