put across a line or lyric with
a lot of inner feeling," said her
husband, who's been associ-
ated with community theater
for the past 22 years, acting,
choreographing and design-
ing sets. "She can make the
audience feel what she's say-
ing and singing. She just has
great stage presence."
McIntosh filled a niche in
community theater in 1971
when she performed in
Richard III at the Detroit
Resident Artists Theater,
Carousel at Hazel Park Com-
munity Theater, Hello, Dolly
and Fiddler on the Roof both
at the Utica Music Theater.
"When I played Hodel in
Fiddler, I was also the ethnic
adviser, teaching Jewish
tradition to the cast, and that
was fun," she said.
In the 1980s, she became a
member of Stagecrafters and
has performed in several of its
productions at the Baldwin
Theater in Royal Oak, in-
cluding The Sound of Music
(1980), An Enchanted Even-
ing at the Baldwin Theater
(1986) and The Miracle
Worker (1987).
She has also appeared in
productions at the Dearborn
Civic Theater and the Players
Guild of Dearborn.
Two years ago, McIntosh
made her debut in profes-
sional theater, performing in
Two by Two at the Backstage
in Detroit. Since then, she
has appeared in three other
professional theater produc-
tions, Broadway to Hollywood
and You're Gonna Love
Tomorrow, both at the
Backstage, and Do Black Pa-
tent Leather Shoes Really
Reflect Up? at the Marquis
Theater in Novi. Her only
reprised role came in 1984
when she played Julie in
Carousel back to life for a
theater group in Walled Lake.
"You look at things in a dif-
ferent perspective when
you're older," she said. "I
think I'm at my best now that
I'm older. People in their 20s
look good, but they tend not
to have the wealth of ex-
perience that they need. Plus,
a woman's voice matures in
her 30s and I think she's far
more capable of handling
some of the roles at that time
than when she was more 'age
appropriate' in her 20s."
Unlike most women who
pursue modeling careers in
their late teens to early 20s,
McIntosh began modeling
three years ago at the age of
39, and she has been busy
working mall shows at Har-
vard Row, Twelve Oaks,
Southland, Eastland and
Summit Place ever since.
She has also has modeled
on the television show, "Kel-
ly and Co.," appeared in an in-

In addition to extensive theater work, McIntosh has plenty of time for
modeling.

dustrial film for Ford Motor
Co., and in a catalogue for a
women's uniform company.
When she's not acting and
modeling, McIntosh works as
an accounts manager for a
dentist in Southfield.
And when she is not
managing accounts at the of
she's at home managing
the accounts of her 12-year-
old daughter, Elizabeth, who
not only shares the theatrical
interest of her parents, but

'I think I'm at my
best now that I'm
older.'

has also excelled on stage.
She appeared as Molly in the
Stagecrafters' production of
Annie. She has also appeared
on the professional stage,
playing Marta in The Sound
of Music at the Marquis.
"I love acting," Elizabeth
said. "I've learned a lot from
watching both my mother
and father perform."
Next month, for the first
time, McIntosh will be joined
on stage by both her husband
and daughter as they reprise
excerpts from their Baldwin
roles when the Stagecrafters'
sister group from England
comes to town.
"We're all excited to finally
get to work together —
especially at the Baldwin,
which is our favorite stage,"
McIntosh said.
Raised in a Conservative
Jewish home, McIntosh had a
strong feeling for her cultural
heritage.
"It was important to my
parents that you felt good
about being Jewish and that
you had a strong feeling of

identification," McIntosh
said. "They tried to inculcate
in us the feeling of being
Jewish, and they succeeded."
McIntosh's dream, surpris-
ingly, is not to appear on
Broadway.
"I don't aspire to be on
Broadway," she said. "If
somebody knocked on my
door and said, 'Here, there's
this part for you,' I would pro-
bably do it; but I love theater
so much that I would hate to
attach any desperation to it.
I like to do it because it's fun
and not because I have to pay
the bills."
McIntosh said she has only
made a dent in the list of roles
she desires to play.
"My goal is to play Marian
in Music Man, Guinevere in
Camelot, Jesse in Night
Mother and about a dozen
other roles in musicals and
dramas," she said.
McIntosh also admitted she
has no plans for early
retirement.
"Both modeling and acting
feed my soul," she said. "I
want to continue performing
the rest of my life — even if I
have to do it from a
wheelchair." ❑
