News that Elizabeth Wilson, an actress who played lots of moms on stage and screen has died, was released today. The character actress, who never had any children of her own, was 94.
According to the great Internet Broadway Database website, or IBDB, she was in more than 20 Broadway shows. I am glad to say I saw her in four: Threepenny Opera, Morning’s at Seven, You Can’t Take It With You and A Delicate Balance.
She won a Tony Award for playing a blinded Vietnam War veteran’s mother in “Sticks and Bones” and on screen played Dustin Hoffman’s mom in “The Graduate.”
