The Dress Circle: Marin Mazzie Remembered

Oct 14, 2018

Marin Mazzie with her husband, Jason Danieley along with a few publicity shots and her appearances as Anna in "The King and I," Mother in "Ragtime," and as Helen Sinclair in "Bullets Over Broadway."

We never like to do this type of a program, but we felt compelled to remember another wonderful performer whom we lost far too early on this week’s Dress Circle (10/14 7:00 p.m.) as we look back at the career of Marin Mazzie who passed away after a three-year battle with ovarian cancer on September 13 at the age of 57.  For us, we’ll always remember her iconic performance as Mother in “Ragtime” where she stopped the show with her incredibly moving performance of “Back to Before.”   We were also thrilled to see her spirited performance as Lilli Vanessi / Katharine in the 1999 revival of “Kiss Me Kate.”  These two shows alone are testament to her versatility and power.  

Along with performances from "Ragtime" and "Kiss Me Kate," we’ll also be featuring Mazzie in the original cast recording of Sondheim’s “Passion,” the 2012 off-Broadway musical version of Stephen King’s “Carrie,” the 1995 Encores revival of Cole Porter’s “Out of This World,” and the 2015 studio cast of an unproduced Vernon Duke musical entitled “Misia.”  Please join us as we remember a great talent and wonderful person.
