In Memoriam 2013

Each spring as the American Theatre Wing's Tony Awards® approach, we pause to remember friends and colleagues who have left us during the past year. The names of some of those who worked on Broadway are listed below (May 2012-May 2013). They are always in our hearts.

We invite you to share specific memories about these individuals, and to add the names of others in the theatre community who died during the past year, by leaving a comment at the bottom of this page.
