Streep to receive Monte Cristo Award
I thought it would be a nice change of pace to post about something unrelated to Meryl's film work. Today it was announced that she will be the recipient of the Monte Cristo Award from the Eugene O'Neill Center for "her monumental achievements and contributions to the American theater." I recommend reading the article, as it gives a nice bit of insight into Meryl's fledgling experiences in acting. It's where she honed her incomparable skills after what she had called a very "intense education" at Yale Drama school. The award will be presented at a ceremony held in New York on April 21. Congratulations, Meryl.
