Joe Masteroff to Be Honored by Roundabout Theatre Company, Marquees to Be Dimmed
The Tony-winning Cabaret and She Loves Me writer died recently at the age of 98.
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced that on Wednesday, October 17, at 5:45pm, the American Airlines Theatre, Studio 54, and the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre will dim their marquees for one minute in honor of Joe Masteroff, the Tony-winning Cabaret and She Loves Me writer who died recently at the age of 98.
"We deeply mourn the loss of our friend Joe Masteroff, one of the 20th century's masters of the Great American Musical," said Roundabout artistic director and CEO Todd Haimes in a statement. "His She Loves Me and Cabaret helped shape our theater, and we were honored to present them both on Broadway. Joe was a close collaborator, a legendary wit, and a dear friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family."
The community is welcome to gather at the American Airlines Theatre, where the marquee will feature Masteroff's name and image in celebration of his memory.
