Sally Struthers is best known for her roles in "All in the Family," "Gilmore Girls" and "Still Standing," but the actress has long been a supporter and star of resident theater.
Just recently, she starred as that matchmaking widow Dolly Levi in "Hello Dolly!" at the Alhambra Dinner Theatre in Jacksonville, Fla. And last night, she co-hosted the 50th anniversary gala for the Theatre Communications Group, the New York-based alliance of 500 resident theaters across the country.
Teresa Eyring, Theatre Communication Group's executive director, told ABCNews.com that Struthers, who turns 64 in July, was the perfect choice for co-host because of her experience as a performer and her activism.
"Sally has worked in a number of TCG theaters," Eyring said. "She's someone who's really devoted her life to being a performer and she's a voice for activism."
