NOTES

"For years the line on Cusack has been: Why isn't she getting better roles?

'A lot of it has to do with [the fact] there are way more different character roles for men than there are for women . . . With women, it's usually you're the babe or you're the supportive friend [who's] sort of brassy and obnoxious, cracking jokes. I'm not the babe." --From "Joan of Spark" by Lewis Beale in DAILY NEWS, September 16, 1997

"I'm not at Joanie's level as an actor." --John Cusack quoted in THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 14, 1997

"Watching Joan is like seeing a pot on the stove. There are all sorts of little bubbles and then bang, it's at full boil." --playwright Cindy Lou Johnson to THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 5, 1989 (Cusack co-starred in the Off-Broadway production of Johnson's play "Brilliant Traces")

Some sources list Ms. Cusack's birthdate as November 11.
