In Memoriam: Remembering Those We Lost in 2020-2021

Time as well as the pandemic have robbed the South Florida theater community of so many beloved and respected colleagues. The loss in 2020-2021 was not only to fellow artists, but to the patrons who valued their contributions to the fabric of the artistic and cultural life here. We take a moment to say thank you to each.
