RIP Olympia Dukakis. . . .You'll always be Mrs. Madrigal to me

Recommended Posts

I know, that's a super-weird choice as the first role to come to mind -- but her character on Tales of the City was a memorable part of my baby-queer existence. <Sniff>.

She and her husband ran a theater project in Montclair, New Jersey, which did a combination of classics and workshops of new works.  They did the best production of A Midsummer Night's Dream that I've ever seen, using actors from the local college.  I don't know how long they were able to keep the operation going, but my lover and I really enjoyed all the performances we attended.

She got to say my favorite line in Steel Magnolias:  "You are evil and must be destroyed."

Steel Magnolia’s come to mind for me when I think of her. RIP Olympia.
