José Benjamín Quintero was a Panamanian theatre director, producer and pedagogue best known for his interpretations of the works of Eugene O'Neill. He directed over seventy productions by a great number of writers, including Truman Capote, Jean Cocteau, Thornton Wilder, Jean Genet and Brendan Behan. He also directed plays by Tennessee Williams, including the 1952 production of Summer and Smoke, which made Geraldine Page a star. In 1961, he directed Vivien Leigh and Warren Beatty in The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone which brought Lotte Lenya an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress. Quintero battled alcoholism and with the help of his life partner, Nicholas Tsacrios, a former advertising executive, was able to defeat his addiction in the 1970s. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1987 that necessitated the removal of his larynx, which ultimately led to his death in New York City in 1999. He remained active until nearly the end of his life. At his memorial, Liv Ullmann recalled ''He said to me, 'I am not ready to die yet, though, if I die, I have had a rich life.'” The Jose Quintero Theatre on West 42nd Street in Manhattan was named in his honor.
Together from (around) 1950 to 1999: 49 years.
