Where do I look for inspiration?
I don’t have to look for inspiration — it’s here, everywhere, every day, there’s always something marvelous, something totally unexpected, that starts you thinking… colors your day…..

My favorite book?
I Never Saw An Arab Like Him – a collection of short stories written by my husband, James Maxwell, who gave the book to me shortly after we’d met. As it turned out, I’d already read and admired them — in The New Yorker.

What play or production changed your life?
You’ll think this is crazy, but it was an elementary school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I was in fifth grade. At this time New York had the finest school system in the nation, and our teachers expected a great deal from us. Each week, a class had to perform some kind of activity on the auditorium stage, in front of the whole school. I was a chubby Titania; my mother made my costume — as did all the other mothers, I suppose. We’d rehearse after school; no one seemed to have any trouble learning the lines. Nobody forgot. And when we finished, everybody applauded! What a wonderful time! Everything about acting was such fun!

And then, of course, there was Let’s Pretend — on the radio each Saturday morning, where children played all the parts, just as we had in school. I just had to see that show! Some time later I was working with those wonderful actors… several of whom are still performing today.

My best escape?
I love to walk. From my house to Central Park and Lincoln Center there’s another world.

I feel most like myself?
When I’m working. I love rehearsal – we get to those moments/find those places where we know we have to be …..

What no one knows about me? I wish I knew.

Lynne Rogers’ many TV appearances included many years as a leading lady on Guiding Light; she worked with Yul Brynner, Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, Abe Burrows, Alan Ludden and Betty White.

Week in Review, April 30 – May 6, 2012


LPTW’s Blog30 was created to highlight the diversity, passion and brilliance of the individual members of the League of Professional Theatre Women in celebration of the organization’s 30th Anniversary. Every Sunday, the women featured in the previous six days, as well as three others from our first two months, receive a little more attention, a second chance for readers to learn about them. Sunday is often a day for reflection, offering the opportunity to catch up on the previous week’s activities. Now, the Week in Review gives our readers the opportunity to experience a week’s entries in one easy sitting. We hope you enjoy the latest addition to Blog30.

Mari Lyn Henry

Mari Lyn Henry, member of the League of Professional Theatre WomenEducator, Talent Manager, Career Coach
New York, New York USA

I feel most like myself when I teach a group of young actors audition skills.

Everyone knows me, because I’m an open book.

I look for inspiration from great works of art at the Metropolitan Museum.

The RSC’s NICHOLAS NICKLEBY changed my life because of Trevor Nunn’s imagination and the core work of the ensemble.

My favorite line is from the movie CASABLANCA: “Round up the usual suspects.”

My favorite cocktail is the Pasha Martini from the Pasha Restaurant (70 W. 71st Street) with sour cherry and lime juice. They also make great Turkish food.

My best escape is a biography.

I still dream of going to Paris to pay my respect to Sarah Bernhardt’s grave.

Mari Lyn Henry is the co-author with Lynne Rogers of five editions of HOW TO BE A WORKING ACTOR. More info: www.howtobeaworkingactor.com
