Screen legend Katharine Hepburn died Sunday at her home in Saybrook, Conn. She was 96. Although most people remember Hepburn for her film roles, the actress began her career on Broadway. Even after becoming a Hollywood star, she continued to appear on stage frequently. NPR's Bob Mondello saw Hepburn perform live twice and offers an appreciation.
