Julie Harris, a towering figure of the American theatre in the decades following World War II, who created several iconic stage roles — collecting five Tony Awards along the way — died Aug. 24 in West Chatham, MA. We look back at some of her famed stage performances.
Ms. Harris' theatrical career lasted more than six decades. In addition to her Tony Awards, she also received three Emmy Awards, a Grammy Award and an Academy Award nomination. She was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1994, a Special Tony Award in 2002 and in 2005 she was a Kennedy Center Honoree.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
