Jose Quintero, one of America’s eminent stage directors, will be awarded an honorary doctorate from Cal State Fullerton during graduation ceremonies May 28. Quintero was a force behind the off-Broadway movement of the 1950s and largely was responsible for the resurgence of Eugene O’Neill plays at that time. His Tony-winning production of “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” 1n 1956 with Frederic March, Florence Eldridge and Jason Robards is considered a landmark. The Panamanian-born director is being honored for his “distinguished career in the arts,” according to a university spokesman. It will be only the second time the school has awarded an honorary doctorate. Quintero has taught theater classes and workshops at Cal State Fullerton each spring semester since 1984.
