Three-time Tony nominee Marin Mazzie, will be celebrated October 25 at the Gershwin Theatre. Marin, passed away September 13 at the age of 57 from Cancer.
Her husband, actor Jason Danieley, currently co-starring in Pretty Woman announced that the 1:30 PM–3:30 PM tribute will be open to friends, family, and the theatre community. Attendees can expect performances and testimonials from loved ones and theatre colleagues.
“I wanted to toast Marin in a Broadway theatre surrounded by people who loved her since she spent so much of her life on stage and loved this community so much,” said Danieley. “We are all still very much in mourning, but I know Marin would want us to celebrate, sing, and even laugh, and that’s what we intend to do. The outpouring of love from hundreds and hundreds of fans and colleagues from the theatre world has been overwhelming and yet not surprising since she gave so much of herself to so many. She was a gifted actress and singer, but I think her incredible spirit and humanity even exceeded her talent.”
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions for Marin Mazzie can be made to Cancer Support Community, cancersupportcommunity.org; The Actors Fund, actorsfund.org; Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Allianace, ocrfa.org; and Western Michigan University’s Barbara Marineau/Marin Mazzie Music Theatre Scholarship, which was created in 2003 with the proceeds of a benefit concert performed by Ms. Mazzie and Marineau at WMU, their alma mater.
