As part of our 30th Anniversary Season tribute to Julie Harris, WHAT has curated a memorial display in an effort to inform the public of Julie’s deep relationship with theatrical organizations and individuals on Cape Cod.
Visitors to WHAT will have the opportunity to see Julie’s life in retrospect through a video created by Francesca James for the December 3 Memorial in New York, as well as stories and memorabelia from the individuals and theater companies she touched directly on Cape Cod.
Of particular note in exhibit is the small bench Julie used as her resting spot while on trial as Joan of Arc on Broadway in The Lark – a performance that earned her a Tony Award. Other items in the display include tributes from Julie’s friends and fellow actors: Noel Tipton, who escorted Julie to the theatre on many occasions; Colin Hamell, who acted with Julie in The Beauty Queen of Leenane (produced at WHAT); and Rose Caliri, a friend and supporter of Julie’s here on Cape Cod.
The collection is a three-dimensional, interactive display, incorporating video, mementos and stories. It is a look back on Julie’s career through the eyes of the people and companies who knew, loved and worked with her here, including Cape Playhouse, Monomoy, Eventide Arts, HJT, Academy of Performing Arts, and WHAT.
The display is free and open to the public seven days a week through September, from noon to 6pm. Another WHAT tribute to Julie, I Am a Camera, opens the following week
