2009 Master Teacher: Lynn Redgrave

Lynn Redgrave

“So many people were touched and inspired by Lynn Redgrave at Ten Chimneys: her Fellows, our volunteers, staff and trustees, our audiences last summer, and many others.  All of us are mourning the loss of this amazing woman.

“In addition to her great talent as an actor of depth and honesty, Lynn Redgrave was deeply committed to mentoring the next generation of great stage actors.  And, as a mentor, she was truly astounding – generous, sincere, perceptive, and passionate.  The world-class actors Lynn mentored at Ten Chimneys last summer were forever changed.

“Lynn was also one of the first people to understand the potential of the Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship program. She gave so much to us all last summer, and so much to American theatre.  Lynn set the tone and the standard for the future of the Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship Program.  She now stands, not only as a pillar of the Redgrave legacy, but also of the Lunt-Fontanne legacy.” Sean Malone, Former President, Ten Chimneys Foundation
