1. 218 Kathryn Grody: The Unexpected 3rd, a Work in Progress Gail Zelitzky and Catherine Marienau 35:29

A true Renaissance woman, Kathryn Grody is an actor, playwright and activist. She wanted to act since childhood. While born in Los Angeles, she recognized that living there was a cosmic error and never felt at home until she moved to New York City.

Well-known in regional theater, on and off-Broadway and, most recently for her 1-woman show, The Unexpected 3rd, a Work in Progress, she is the recipient of numerous awards. Kathryn always tries to see the humor in life. 

And, she doesn’t buy into stereotypes, recognizing that neither the past nor the future are real. She cautions not to miss the present. She is thoughtful about her own aging. Having had her children in her late 30’s, Kathryn never thought about aging until she bent down to pick her grandchild up from the floor.  

“As theater artists we can help people look at what is hard to see, or affirm what has been unseen.”
