This one is really sad for me. :cry:

Marin Mazzie, Platinum-Voiced Tony Nominee of Passion & Ragtime, Dies at 57


"Marin Mazzie, the beloved Broadway star who lent a powerful balance of drama and comedy to a variety of roles on Broadway, died on September 13 in New York City, according to The New York Times. The cause of death was ovarian cancer. Mazzie was 57.

Mazzie turned heads when she originated the role of Clara in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical drama Passion (1994), earning her first Tony nomination as Best Featured Actress in a Musical. A few years later, Mazzie introduced the role of Mother in Ragtime (1998), a musical version of E.L. Doctorow's iconic novel adapted by Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. The show netted Mazzie another Tony nom, as Best Leading Actress in a Musical.

Mazzie struck gold again with a comedic turn as Lilli Vanessi/Katharine in a Broadway revival of the Cole Porter-scored musical Kiss Me, Kate (1999). The production earned Mazzie another Tony nod as Leading Actress in a Musical. She later reprised her acclaimed performance in London, earning a 2002 Olivier nomination.

In 2010, Mazzie and real-life husband Jason Danieley replaced in the roles of married couple Diana and Dan Goodman in Broadway's Next to Normal. In addition to this shared stage turn, the couple regularly performed cabarets at venues including midtown's Feinstein's/54 Below. Mazzie and Danieley met in 1996 while rehearsing the play Trojan Women: A Love Story; they married in 1997.

Mazzie's additional Broadway credits include Man of La Mancha (2003), Spamalot (2008), Enron (2010), Bullets Over Broadway (2014) and The King and I (2016), which marked her last Broadway credit. Her off-Broadway work included roles in And the World Goes 'Round (1991), The Vagina Monologues (1999), Carrie (2012) and her final New York stage turn, McNally's Fire and Air (2018).

In 2017, Mazzie was inducted into the Theater Hall of Fame."

**************************************************

I wanted to post all of the obit from http://www.Broadway.com ~ She had a wonderful voice, and one of the best "acting voices" around. I think one of my most favourite parts she played, was that of the Mother in the Off-Broadway (smash) production of CARRIE. "When There's No One" is still a chilling haunting song to me, sung by her in that production. I never got to see her live onstage, unfortunately, but that doesn't stop me from appreciating what a truly special gift she had....and was.

She will be missed a lot.

:cry: Hard to believe that such a talented, vibrant performer has been taken at such a young age. She was so full of life. I wish I'd seen her cabarets. I bet they were spectacular! I'm glad that Broadway dimmed the lights for her....she so deserved that.

^ If you haven't got it already, you should try and get her live act CD, at 54 Below....

Amazon.com ~ "You think you know three-time Tony Award Nominee Marin Mazzie from her recent show-stopping turn in BULLETS OVER BROADWAY, her corseted characters in RAGTIME and PASSION or maybe from the scene-chewing screwballs of KISS ME KATE and SPAMALOT... or possibly you thought you gained a glimpse of her as the star of NEXT TO NORMAL (heaven help us if that is really her in the guise of Margaret in CARRIE!). Come hear the real Marin Mazzie as she steps back into her formative years with an evening of fun and fantasy as we get inside the head of a Midwest girl and the music she loved."

Review
'Marin Mazzie embodies the description 'all woman' more completely than almost anyone else on Broadway.
An amusing, savvy show... she sets off sparks from the opening number.' --The New York Times

https://www.amazon.com/Make-Your-Own-Kind-Music/dp/B00WMCOQS6/ref=sr_1_4?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1537051424&sr=1-4&keywords=marin+mazzie&dpID=61m37QmpDxL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch (Of course, at this time now, it's Temporarily Out of Stock.)

I expect that there is a big sales surge now, on whichever CDs Marin has sung on or with. So IMhO....Buy "Carrie" NOW!
https://www.amazon.com/Carrie-Musical-Premiere-Cast-Recording/dp/B008VTRJQ0/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1537051704&sr=1-2&keywords=carrie&dpID=61sF1XJBJ6L&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch My "OMGomgOMGomg...Insanely Brilliant!" Review of it is on the last page (5) of Reviews. And the review is still true today, nearly 6 years later. :smile:

Thankfully, we have her wonderful voice on so many CDs.
On and Off Broadway; Concept musical albums... awesome!

Saw this little gem on Sunday. Gotta say, I was very surprised at what a great show it was. I had seen the movie but heard nothing about the musical. Great performances. The children were freaking amazing! Like Matilda amazing! the music was fantastic. I am thinking this Andrew Lloyd Webber dude is quite a talent. I see great things in his future. :lover:

Next Sunday I am taking the whole family to Avenue Q! None of them have ever seen it before. Including Alana. I am so very excited! :b :br :b

Hmmmm...just noted that there are nine unoccupied theaters on Broadway, now. Historic theaters empty and waiting for shows! :cry: (Not good for audiences or actors.) :wtf:

It was awesome! It was my 3rd time seeing it. But Alana and the kids had never been. You can never get enough Trekki Monster and Bad Idea Bears. Gary Coleman hasn't aged a day.

^ I love the look of this stage set with the wings as part of the street itself!
When I saw it in previews in London, I don't think the wings were as elaborate
as these. Glad everybody enjoyed it, Guy!

We're coming up on our third go, seeing "The Book of Mormon" Wednesday evening.
Then (I treated myself), I'll be seeing the show again on Sunday. My fourth time!

:b

EDIT(27th): We saw it last night, and it - was - just as awesome - as the last two times we saw it! :smile:
Everybody was on their feet the second the curtain came up for the bows. And we had "Mormon Virgins"
sitting beside us, who just howled at everything! All 4 women told us they were definitely seeing it
again, next time it came into town, We agreed with that. And I see it another time on Sunday!

And I even bought the t-shirt! =)
