Abstract:

"Walter Kerr said she was the epitome of stardom. In 1977 President Gerald Ford hailed her 'excellence of achievement' and in 1986 Ronald Reagan awarded her the National Medal of the Arts. She was selected by nationally known director Lee Strasberg as a 'vivid example of what American actors are capable of' and rivaled Helen Hayes for the crown of First Lady of American Theatre. Yet very little has been published about Eva La Gallienne despite her many great accomplishments as an actress and as the founding and maintaining force behind the first civic repertory theatre in the United States. Shattered Applause makes the first major contribution toward the correction of this oversight. This book looks at not only her public but also her private life, examining her lesbianism and how it played a part in the struggles, defeats, and triumphs that combined to inspire her greatness."
