Dear Garrison, I am Venezuelan-American
February 14, 2006 |
I am Venezuelan-American and discovered your show back in 1984 when I moved to Miami. I would like to know more about Sue Scott, I just love the way she portrays all these characters of different ages, origins, etc., and she makes everyone of them believable.
Please do not retire ever.
Sue grew up in Tucson and studied theater at the University of Arizona and came north to work at the Old Creamery Theatre in Iowa where she got to do everything, play Dolly Levi in "The Matchmaker" and take on all sorts of character roles. She arrived in Minneapolis in 1982 at Dudley Riggs' Brave New Workshop, moved on to The Illusion Theater, Mixed Blood Theatre and The Great American History Theater, and did "The Search for Intelligent Life in the Universe" by Jane Wagner, the solo piece associated with Lily Tomlin. She had done radio voice-overs for years and acted in radio sketches, and she joined our little troupe in 1992.
