A Delicate Balance, revival 1996


"Every aspect of Gerald Gutierrez's revival was flawless. Etched in my mind remains the superb acting: Elaine Stritch, pacing; Mary Beth Hurt, storming; Rosemary Harris, sitting. But it is the memory of witnessing George Grizzard's breakdown in the final moments, recalling the dead kitten, that gives me goosebumps to this day. He won the Tony Award for best actor that year, and rightfully so."
