Mrs. John Marsh In Athens

During tonight’s preview performance in Athens, the audience gave the play and actress a standing ovation. The audience included Gone With the Wind fans known as “Windies,” University of Georgia librarians who catalogue the expansive collection of her papers, Mitchell scholars and two authors who have written books about Mitchell.

“She was so perfectly focused, she was like a real character from another time, but talking directly to me. She could have been playing the part of an unknown made-up character without the Margaret Mitchell mystique, and she would still have been totally engaging, pulling her audience into whatever she was relating,” said one Athens audience member.

The play opens in Atlanta on June 2.
