Peggy Phillips

Peggy Phillips, a theatrical press agent during the golden age of Broadway, when she repped such works as Angel Street, South Pacific and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, died Dec. 27, 2004, according to colleagues in the Association of Theatrical Press Agents and Managers (ATPAM). Ms. Phillips was a member of ATPAM since 1950, the union reported. She was 88 and died in a care facility attached to her retirement community in Dana Point, CA. She died of complications from a stroke, according to friend Kevin O'Connor, a theatre manager and press agent whose mother was a press rep at the same time as Ms. Phillips — back when the ladies "were distinct minorities" in a male-dominated industry, he said.
