Biography

​From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.   Colleen Rose Dewhurst (June 3, 1924 — August 22, 1991) was a Canadian-American actress known for a while as the Queen of Off-Broadway. In her autobiography, Dewhurst wrote: I had moved so quickly from one Off-Broadway production to the next that I was known, at one point, as the Queen of Off-Broadway. This title was not due to my brilliance but rather because most of the plays I was in closed after a run of anywhere from one night to two weeks. I would then move immediately into another.
