SHE’S THE BEST THING IN IT

Expected to Attend: Associate Producer Anya Leta

NYC PREMIERE Despite her Tony-winning performance in Broadway’s Grey Gardens, 79-year- old veteran character actor Mary Louise Wilson finds few new opportunities on the stage, so she decides to try teaching acting back in her native New Orleans. As Wilson finds her footing in this new role, she reflects on her long career, the sacrifices she’s made and the challenges faced by older actresses in the industry, as bolstered by interviews with such notables as Frances McDormand and Melissa Leo.
