Carey Perloff Remembers Olympia Dukakis

She was an astonishing teacher, spending hours and hours in the classroom every time she came to ACT, and back home in New York, at NYU.

She believed in acting companies and great classical literature, she believed in training and generosity of spirit, she believed in community. – American Theatre
