One of the principal figures in the last great chapter of American theater--the 1950s in New York--Quintero directed 17 productions of O'Neill's plays.

On March 15, 1956, when Jose Quintero took the elevator to the fourth floor of the Lowell Hotel in New York City, he was on his way to a meeting that would change his life. He was going to meet Carlotta Monterey O'Neill, the widow of playwright Eugene O'Neill, to ask permission for the fledgling Circle in the Square theater in Greenwich Village to stage a revival of O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh." The play had premiered on Broadway in 1946 to a disappointing reception--and none of O'Neill's plays had been staged in the United States since.

Thomas Mann had a curt dismissal for someone who "thought he could pluck a leaf from the tree of art without paying for it with his life." No one understands in his bones the meaning of that line more than Jose Quintero. Quintero has paid, over and over again, for being one of the greatest directors this country has known, by the way he uses the torment and complications of his productions on himself before he lays them out for his actors.

Dewhurst Tribute: Colleen Dewhurst was remembered as a sensitive, intelligent and dedicated actress at a memorial service Monday in New York. Playwright Edward Albee, actor Jason Robards and director Jose Quintero were among those paying tribute, and Candice Bergen, unable to attend because of her "Murphy Brown" shooting schedule, sent respects in a statement read by Zoe Caldwell. The memorial ended with a thank you from Alexander Scott, one of Dewhurst's two sons by ex-husband George C. Scott.
