Yesterday, Meryl Streep spoke to a packed house at Kent Center School. The presentation was part of the Kent Memorial Library’s “Great Performances” series this year, which featured opera singer Marilyn Horne earlier in the season. On Sunday, Streep’s star power pulled in an audience of nearly 500 people. In a dialogue with author Frank Delaney, Streep spoke about how she started her career, the various people she’s portrayed in her numerous films and thoughts on life itself. “I remember summers when there was nothing to do [in suburban New Jersey]. “We would say, ‘WE’RE BORED!’” she told a rapt audience in Kent Sunday afternoon when she appeared as the closing act of Kent Memorial Library’s “Great Performances” spring lecture series. “My mother would say, ‘Go outside and don’t come back until dinner.’ I remember lying on the grass and watching the clouds, smelling the wonderful smell of the grass, and all those things that feed the soul.” In making the introduction, Delaney said audiences have enjoyed the emotional thrill of her every role and her performances have inspired us. A nice article with plenty of quotes from the evening can be found at Litchfield County Times website. Pictures will follow.
