Joanna Gleason.com About Me

Well, I first saw Joanna when PBS showed Into the Woods and I thought she was neat. For whatever strange reason I followed her career and I just found her to be an interesting person. Hey, everyone needs a hobby, and I find following an actress that isn't in the news daily and has done tons of interesting projects to be a fascinating journy.

I live with a fantastic woman who is not only putting up with my Joanna-hobby, she is infact becoming Joanna's Number Two fan. She finds most of the pictures and 'net information these days. She's a major driving factor in growing the collection, too. She, however, is more of a Lucille Ball fan and we have an entire room in our house dedicated to all things Lucy. Also in our house and taking up lots of our devotion is our kitty cat, Chessie.

My main interests include computers and trains. I love trains: Model trains, real trains, train magazines. I also have a history with music. I have toured Europe twice with a band, played on a cruise ship, and had gigs all over the US. Sadly, I haven't done too much musically these days.

My job deals with computers for a major computer company. I am a former computer science professor at an East Coast US college. While there I got to teach the famous Monty Hall statistical problem.

My Joanna interest has been slowly growing over the years. Iíve only really recently started collecting Joanna-stuff and diligently recording things on TV. I started this site in hopes of finding other nuts like me with stuff to trade, and to get the word out about a fantastic actress.

Iíve found some autographed playbills and a nice headshot which is framed and on my mantle right next to my favorite model train engines. I'm planning to move the Joanna collection up to the hall outside of the Lucy-room.
