About MARLO THOMAS:
Marlo Thomas is an award-winning actress, author and activist whose body of work continues to impact American entertainment and culture. She has received four Emmys, the Peabody, a Golden Globe and a Grammy, and was inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame. She is also the recipient of the National Civil Rights Museum Freedom Award, the Helen Caldicott Award for Nuclear Disarmament and the Jefferson Award for Public Service, which she received in 2011 along with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Born into a show business family-her father was TV star Danny Thomas-Marlo worked her way up through summer stock and TV roles, and in 1966, created and executive-produced That Girl, the first situation comedy about an independent young woman living on her own and pursuing a career. The overwhelming fan mail from That Girl politicized Marlo: She became a delegate to the 1972 Democratic Convention, an organizer for the Equal Rights Amendment; and a co-creator, along with Gloria Steinem, of the Ms. Foundation and the national Take Our Daughters to Work Day.
In 1972, Marlo brought her passion for fighting cultural stereotypes to a younger generation, conceiving the celebrated children's project, Free to Be...You and Me, which included a number-one bestselling book; an Emmy Award-winning TV special; a gold record album; and a stage play. Embraced by teachers and librarians nationwide, Free to Be eventually became a part of school curriculum in 35 states.
Throughout it all, Marlo has continued to be a presence on television, producing and starring in dozens of issues-oriented films, including Consenting Adults, Ultimate Betrayal, and Nobody's Child, for which she won the Emmy for Best Dramatic Actress.
On stage, she has explored such complex issues as death and dying (The Shadow Box), wrongful conviction (The Exonerated) and the emotional aftermath of 9/11 (The Guys). Her Broadway credits include Thieves, Social Security, The Shadow Box and Elaine May's comedy George Is Dead. Regional theatre productions include: Who's Afraid Of Virginia Wolff Woman In Mind, Paper Doll, The Effect of Gamma Rays and Arthur Laurents' final play, New Year's Eve. She appeared in the National Company of Six Degrees of Separation; and is currently co-starring in a pre-Broadway show at the George Street Playhouse entitled Clever Little Lies, written by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro.
Marlo has produced six New York Times best-selling books: Free To Be...You and Me; Free To Be...A Family; The Right Words at the Right Time; The Right Words at the Right Time, Volume 2: Your Turn!; Thanks & Giving All Year Long; and, in 2009, her memoir, Growing Up Laughing. Her seventh book, It Ain't Over Till It's Over, is scheduled for release in Spring 2014.
In 2010, Marlo launched her innovative website, MarloThomas.com, in partnership with AOL and the Huffington Post. Her informative articles, expert forums, and wildly popular interview show, "Mondays With Marlo," have earned her 100,000,000 page views in 2013 alone.
Marlo is also the National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which her father founded in 1962. As the public face of the hospital, she spearheads the team that raises $850 million annually. In 2004, she created St. Jude's annual Thanks & Giving program, an unprecedented collaborative campaign, in partnership with more than 60 of the nation's leading corporations and retailers, that raises millions of dollars from holiday shoppers across the nation.
