Fay was one of the critics’ darlings from the 1950s on. They got to put their pens to good use rhapsodizing over her Amanda in the 1960 production of The Glass Menagerie and Big Mama in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, both at Phoenix Little Theatre. Though drama was her forte, she had a nice touch with musicals, too, including PLT’s 1961 mounting of The Happiest Millionaire.
In March of 1975, Scottsdale Community Players presented the world premiere of Tim Kelly’s Frankenstein at the Stagebrush Theatre with Faye in the cast.
1962. Phoenix Little Theatre. “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
