Personal Quote:

[Following his wife's death] Writers go bad when the angels desert them. Dylan Thomas was a marvelous poet and drank himself to death. Somewhere along the way the angel deserted him. An angel has left me too, but the writing angel is still with me.

Won two Tony Awards in 1960 for "The Miracle Worker:" as Best Author (Dramatic) and as author of the Best Play winner.
