Philadelphia born and bred Beatrice Williams-Rude was a contestwinning child pianist, chorus kid, actress, singer and model. She has appeared on Broadway, off-Broadway, in light opera, summer stock -- both “in the round” and proscenium--performing in plays and musicals. After receiving three unpalatable job offers (obscene hardly describes them) she returned to school and changed the direction of her life, becoming a copy editor. As Beatrice became ever more involved in the world of publishing she added new roles: researcher and reviewer. Her essays on theater and opera appeared on “Broadway After Dark” and her “think pieces” on “The Constant Columnist.” In the winding course of her career she has had “more names than a con man”: Beatrice Ruth (the most theater credits), Beatrice Ruth Williams, Beatrice R. W. Williams, and Beatrice Williams-Rude. Starting in Philadelphia she was Beats Walsh. “Misadventures of a Would-Be Muse” – Peripatetic and Picaresque -- describes her path from “droop of the third grade” to self acceptance. Beatrice is an active campaigner for humane treatment of animals, the abolition of torture of man and beast, and for world peace. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Alan Rude.
