Photo Coverage: Primary Stages Honors Julie Harris

Julie Harris, one of America's most beloved leading ladies, was honored at Primary Stages 22nd Anniversary Gala Benefit in The Crystal Room at Tavern on the Green on Monday evening, November 6th.

In announcing this year's honoree, Primary Stages Artistic Director Andrew Leynse said, "Each year, we honor an artist who has made significant contributions to the American theater and the development of new plays in particular. The legendary Julie Harris is most deserving of such an honor." 

For more than half a century, Harris has been recognized as the soul of the American theater. She is the most honored performer in Tony history with ten nominations and five victories. She won the award as Best Actress for I Am a Camera (1952), The Lark (1956), Forty Carats (1969), The Last of Mrs. Lincoln (1973), and The Belle of Amherst (1977). Her five additional nominations were for Marathon '33 (1964), The Au Pair Man (1974), Skyscraper (1966), Lucifer's Child (1991), and The Gin Game (1997).

The entertainment for the evening included testimonials by Anne Jackson and Eli Wallach, Elizabeth Wilson, and Marian Seldes, among others.
