Remembering our Honorary Chair, Angela Lansbury
A message from Heather Hitchens, President & CEO on behalf of the American Theatre Wing
The American Theatre Wing mourns the loss of our Honorary Chair, Angela Lansbury, whose involvement with the Wing spanned 8 astonishing decades. She first entered our world as a student of the American Theatre Wing Professional School, and then graced the stage with an unrivaled string of unforgettable performances. She won 5 Tony Awards and a Special Tony for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre just this past June and hosted 5 Tony Award telecasts; the most in the history of the awards. As our Honorary Chair, she was a passionate advocate for the next generation of theatre makers. Rest in power, dear friend! You will be deeply, deeply missed.
