From Executive Director Tom Viola: We are a community of people whose work is all about showing up. For ourselves and each other. For an audition or rehearsal, for fight call or half hour. You get there and do the work, hopefully in a way that enhances all that everyone involved has also brought into that particular room or space. And if you’re lucky and really present, magic happens. Marin Mazzie showed up for Broadway Cares again and again. Easily and with great humor, commitment and kindness, when the house was full and cheering and when few were watching. But her presence, grit and a wide smile would set an example for others to do the same. From Easter Bonnet Competition to Broadway Barks, Gypsy of the Year to Nothin’ Like a Dame, thousands of posters signed, fans met and appeals made, few embraced the efforts of @bcefa with such fun, grace and understanding of the difference it makes. Marin was a true champion. A magician whose kindness and uncommon courage will always shine bright and undimmed, never to be forgotten.
