ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY's Mary Louise Wilson Releases New Memoir TodayON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY's Mary Louise Wilson Releases New Memoir Today
by BWW News Desk - Jul 13, 2015

Mary Louise Wilson has been a luminary force in the theatre world for nearly five decades. The veteran actor's performances have ranged from a Tony Award-winning portrayal of Edith Bouvier Beale in Grey Gardens to a Drama Desk Award-winning role as legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland in Full Gallop, which she co-authored with Mark Hampton. But she hasn't limited her talents to the stage. Wilson's astonishing resume also features roles on Louis C.K.'s award-winning television show Louie, Amazon's recent hit Mozart in the Jungle, and the Academy Award nominated film Nebraska. The biting wit and brutal honesty that Wilson brings to her many outstanding performances is once again illuminated in her forthcoming memoir MY FIRST HUNDRED YEARS IN SHOW BUSINESS (Published by The Overlook Press / Hardcover / $28.95 / ISBN: 978-1-4683-1085-6 / Publication Date: July 13, 2015).
