Caitlin Lewis-carter 04/28/2019 Theatre History Holland Taylor Writing two and a half pages on why Holland Taylor is important to theatre history is quite a challenge and is a request to support what to me is a highly debatable premise. While certainly she has had a lengthy and successful career as an actress, her place in the history of theatre does not place her in the pantheon of great stars like Laurence Olivier, Vanessa Redgrave, Patti LuPone and the like. Further, she has not been a major award winner; she has never been a leader of any of the actors’ unions or guilds; she has not written any books, or been the subject of any books or studies (assuming the P.I series by David Housewright is not based on her in a different gender); she has never directed theatre or even television; her writing credits are limited to one play which closed in less than three months; and most of her work has been for television and the cinema, not theatre.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
