Ms. Maxwell is a true gem! I have been privileged to see her off and on Broadway as well as at the Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario, Canada several times. She is one of those truly humble people who you love to watch because this craft comes so easily to her. Check out the Canadian movie "Scar Tissue" (about Alzheimer's Disease) which she made with her CBSRMT "buddy" Paul Hecht. I show it to my Psychology classes to clearly illustrate the disease.
