Today we remember Player June Havoc, who died on this day in 2010. An actress, dancer, stage director and memoirist, Havoc came to fame as a child performer in vaudeville under the tutelage of her mother. June later acted on Broadway and in Hollywood, and was a stage director, both on and off-Broadway. She last acted on television in 1990, on the soap opera “General Hospital,” and she last appeared on television as herself in interviews in the "Vaudeville" episode of  “American Masters” in 1997 and in "The Rodgers & Hart: Thou Swell, Thou Witty" episode of “Great Performances” in 1999. She was among the first class of women admitted to The Players. Her elder sister, Louise gravitated to burlesque and became famous as the elegant ecdysiast Gypsy Rose Lee.
