Ellen Stewart created La Mama in 1961 and to this day it continues to be of great importance to world culture.  Stewart became known as the mother of Off-Off-Broadway theatre.

“I never had self-doubt. I was always taught by my mama that I’m on an island and there’s not a soul on the island but me. And so whatever gets done, I have to do it. That’s the way I was brought up. So I never thought about self-doubt. But anything that I’ve wanted to do, I always believed that somehow – I believe in the somehow – that I could find a way to do it”
