Without the leadership of Margot Harley and John Houseman, The Acting Company wouldn't be existing up to these days. That's why we have to commend the both of them because their contribution was a huge thing in theater industry! Though Mr. Houseman is living eternally already, his legacy and contribution will forever be acknowledged. It's about time we introduce theater to a larger audience so that people would be aware that there are still plays worth watching!
