A multifaceted Broadway actress who found success as an author and teacher, Beatrice Manley also served as the stateside originator of the lead role in Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and, along with husband Herbert Blau, Jules Irving, and Priscilla Pointer, co-founded the San Francisco Actor's Workshop. A Bronx native who at 20 made her Broadway debut in Maxwell Anderson's Eve of Saint Mark, Manley subsequently moved to California after receiving an artist-in-residence scholarship at Stanford. It was there that Manley met director Blau and the couple married shortly after. It was at the Lincoln Center Repertory Theater that Manley appeared most frequently, and with roles in The Caucasian Chalk Circle and The Country Life among others, Manley continued to refine her skills as an actress. Later using her experience to teach acting at Cal Arts, she also authored five plays, two librettos, and three books. In September 13, 2002, Beatrice Manley died in Milwaukee, WI. She was 81.
