Maureen Stapleton, the famous actress was one of only a handful of people to win the Triple Crown of Acting — two Tony Awards for theater, an Oscar for film acting and an Emmy for her television performances.
Throughout her career, Stapleton not only returned to visit her hometown of Troy, NY - she lived in the city and retired nearby.
The Rensselaer County Historical Society is honoring Stapleton’s connection to Troy with an exhibit that opens Friday and continues through July 27. Appropriately, it is titled “Troy is My Hometown: The Life and Times of Maureen Stapleton.”
Phillip Caruso and Ilene Frank, the Executive Directors of the Historical Society join us to tell us more.
