Jackie Mayro 2020


Last week, I was finally able to speak with Jacqueline Mayro, the retired Broadway actress who appears in a small but pivotal role in LET'S GO FOR BROKE. She told me that while she couldn't remember how she met Stuart Duncan, she and Lennie Barrin were partners in ODDITIES, essentially a casting agency for unusual performers. It was as such that she got involved with LET'S GO FOR BROKE, not as an actress. At least not originally. After no one could agree on who should play the part of the kidnapped feminist author in the movie, Stuart suggested she take the role herself...and she did.
