Manhattan Theatre Club pays tribute to the late Jan Maxwell with a June 4 memorial service at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
The 3 PM service, free and open to the public, will feature stories and tributes from several of Maxwell’s peers, directors, friends, and family members, including Lynne Meadow, Ana Gasteyer, Duncan & Marilynn Scott Murphy, Martin Rabbett, Richard Romagnoli, Marc Kudisch, Jayne Houdyshell, Mary Beth Peil, Tony Shalhoub, Richard Chamberlain, Jackie Sanders, Anthony Giardina, Doug Hughes, Robert Emmet Lunney, William Maxwell-Lunney, and musicians Mairi Dorman-Phaneuf, Cecelia Hobbs Gardner, and Bill Hayes.
She was a familiar face to MTC audiences, having appeared on Broadway in The Royal Family and To Be or Not to Be and in the Off-Broadway double-bill of House and Garden.
Those who wish to make charitable donations in Ms. Maxwell’s honor are encouraged to do so through Circles of Six, a “micro-giving community” she founded that encourages groups of friends to donate to six specific charities. Click here for more information.
