Why Celia Keenan-Bolger Wants To Be Like Anita Gillette

There was a sweet aside during my interview with Celia Keenan-Bolger who is featured in "A Parallelogram" at Second Stage off-Broadway.

I asked her if, because her character meets her elderly self in the drama, played by theater veteran Anita Gillette,  has it made herthink about herself at that stage in life?

“I hope to god like I'm like Anita Gillette,” she says. “I cannot tell you how inspired I've been watching her work She going to be 81 during the run and she's the opposite of a cautionary tale. I told her ‘You’re why I want to grow old in the theater.’ “
