Arts-Waves – January 8, 2018: Judith Ivey

Judith Ivey, two-time Tony winning actress, in conversation with Richard Wolinsky.

Judith Ivey is appearing in Harold Pinter’s classic play The Birthday Party, directed by Carey Perloff, at ACT’s Geary Theatre January 10th through February 4th. Judith Ivey has appeared in several Broadway productions, including the role of Amanda in The Glass Menagerie and Sally Durant in Sondheim’s Follies, and is the winner of two Tony Awards for her work. She’s appeared in numerous films and television shows, from The Devil’s Advocate and Flags of Our Fathers to a season’s stint on Designing Women and guest starring roles in dozens of programs.

In The Birthday Party, she portrays Meg, half of a couple who run a boarding house where the events of the play occur.

    I saw the final preview performance last night, and Judith Ivey was spectacular. She deservedly received the biggest ovation, though everyone was excellent. I was not familiar with the play, but the program notes helped a lot. If you don’t try too hard to figure out “what it means” it is very funny, enjoyable and true to human nature.
