PERFORMING ARTS at Pace University presents “THE MASTERS SERIES”


 The Actress Who Has Won Tony Awards for Portraying  Women of Charismatic Power on Broadway –

Medea, Maria Callas and Jean Brodie

ZOE CALDWELL was born in 1933 in Melbourne, Australia, and quickly became a professional actress playing “Slightly Soiled” in “Peter Pan.” Telling other people’s stories, using other people’s words to keep audiences awake and in their seats was all she knew how to do. She has spent the last half century learning more about her craft in many of the greatest companies of the Western World. To her credit are four Tony Awards, an OBE (Order of the British Empire), and a book “I Will Be Cleopatra” published by W.W. Norton. In 2003, she doffed her bonnet to the chancellor of Melbourne University and was made an honorary Doctor of Laws. Recently, she appeared in the film “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” and starred in David Adjmi’s play “Elective Affinities.”

ABOUT THE MASTERS SERIES:  “The Masters Series” at Pace is dedicated to providing the new generation of students/artists with the opportunity of interacting with well-established, outstanding professionals that have developed new voices and ideas. The goal is to reinvigorate the theater’s ancient role as a public forum by focusing on the social and cultural context for the works of the American Theatre of today and tomorrow.  The evening’s guests engage in discussions of their unique practices and bodies of work, followed by a Q&A session with Pace BFA and BA Performing Arts students.
