Ellen Stewart (la MaMa) dead, small chat on http://vimeo.com/18823072

Ellen at her home at E 4th Street, 2007

I’m terribly sorry if I’ve disappointed so many of you by not writing (better still, not being able to write)
about my MaMa’s death, last Thursday. For the past 25 years, I’d been by her side, held her hand at the back of ambulances which rushed her to Cabrini or Beth Israel during her 15 heart attacks. She was the person who gave me a life in the theater. A great conversation between us is available under “talk with celebs” on http://geraldthomasvideos.blogspot.com

I’ll still try to write something. Some memory. After all, this Mama had, noneless than thousands of offsprings. Here I sit, it complete disbelief.

Here’s Ben Brantley’s version, from yesterday’s New York Times.
