In honor of tonight’s Tony Awards, here I am on Broadway in Robert Sherwood’s “Small War on Murray Hill” at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, 1957. Garson Kanin directed; costumes were by Irene Sharaff, the set design was by Boris Aronson. With that creative team, it had to be a hit, right? We ran 12 performances! The lovely Jan Sterling was the star; I played her sister. Cast caricature by George Wachsteter for the New York Journal-American — I’m on the right, next to Daniel Massey, who played my British soldier would-be suitor. Playbill with Jan Sterling and Leo Genn on the cover. #TonyAwards #Broadway #theatre #theater #Tonys #andthetonygoesto #garsonkanin #irenesharaff #borisaronson #actress #broadwayactress #1950s #nyc #1950snyc #1950sbroadway #actorslife #smallwaronmurrayhill #theatre #danielmassey #robertsherwood #georgewachsteter #jansterling #patriciabosworth #ethelbarrymoretheatre

"She was a humble, caring and compassionate person. She adopted us and we in return adopted her. She was part of our family, in every way. She loved my children and treasured being their grandma, it meant everything to her," the post further read.

A special night at The New York Society Library on Monday — thank you to photographer Karen Smul for capturing my speech in this lovely photo. I’ve been a Library member for 52 years and always find whatever book I need when I’m researching various projects there. I was introduced to this amazing treasure by Ward Costello, a fellow cast-mate in Jean Kerr’s play “Mary, Mary” on Broadway. We would go in-between the matinee and evening performances on Wednesdays. 😁 So sweet of the Library to have my books on display! • • • • #nysocietylibrary #nyc #oldnewyork #patriciabosworth #writer #author #literaryresearch #broadway #1960s #jeankerr #booksbooksbooks #bookstagram #library #biography #memoir @karensmul @nysoclib
