Suggested article would include:

  • THEATER; After 50 Years, It's Still a Class Act; The late Stella Adler's tough-love approach to training actors lives on through her academy.

  • Stella for star: In her last three decades, Stella was known primarily as an inspiring acting teacher running studios in New York and Los Angeles, but she was, like all her clan, essentially an actor. Beginning her career as a 4-year-old on the Yiddish stage, she abandoned the theater permanently in 1961 after being critically pummeled in a London production of Arthur Kopit's Oh Dad, Poor Dad.
