Gloria Baxter Receives the Eugart Yerian Award for Lifetime Achievement in Memphis Theater



Jerre Dye and Kell Christie's introduction of U of M professor emeritus Gloria Baxter was probably the most moving I've experienced since I started attending the Ostranders (originally the Memphis Theatre Awards) in 1989.

And then Gloria's wonderful acceptance speech made the introduction seem like an exercise in understatement. Do yourself a favor and click. If the washed out picture drives you crazy, just close your eyes. It's worth a listen.
