Celebration Set Jan. 21 Honoring Tony Finstrom

A celebration of the life of Tony Finstrom, playwright patron and theater lover, is scheduled for Monday, Jan 21 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Wold Performing Arts Center at Lynn University where he served as associate producer of Jan McArt’s New Play Reading Series in which several of his works first appeared.

The event begins with a presentation at 7 p.m. followed by a reception in the lobby at 3601 N. Military Trail Road in Boca Raton. Free parking is available behind the building.

If possible, RSVP to tonyslatest@aol.com.

Finstrom, who died Dec. 18 after a long battle with cancer at the age of 71, earned virtually every local theater award — recognizing his fiscal philanthropy, his hands-on active involvement in organizations supporting theater and his ebullient cheerleading balanced by a clear critical eye.

In lieu of flowers, Finstrom told friends he would prefer contributions in his name to be made to South Florida theaters.
