Cusack family visits campus

Holy Cross was star-struck this winter when Richard Cusack ’50 returned to campus on Feb. 26 with his wife, Nancy, and two of their children, actors John and Joan. Lynn Kremer, chair of the theatre department, welcomed the clan to a trio of workshop performances by current students, after which Professor Steve Vineberg hosted a question-and-answer session in Fenwick Theatre. Vineberg screened clips from films starring Richard, John and Joan. The evening concluded with a dinner in the family’s honor. Richard Cusack, a screenwriter and actor, is celebrating his 50th reunion this year. John has starred in over 40 films, including the recent High Fidelity, which he also produced and co-wrote. Joan Cusack, who is married to Richard Burke ’86, has appeared in over 30 films and starred in TV’s Saturday Night Live. Brother and sister have appeared in eight films together, including Say Anything and Grosse Pointe Blank.
