Memorial for Theatrical Index Founder Price Berkley Set for October 19 logo
A public memorial for the late Price Berkley, founder of Theatrical Index, will be held at Sardi's on Wednesday, October 19, at 5:30pm. Berkley passed away at his home in Manhattan on Sunday, August 21.

Berkeley published the first issue of the Theatrical Index on November 9, 1964. This up-to-date weekly publication has since grown into a comprehensive, insiders' guide to the "who, what, where and when of the American Theater." He retired from the Index in 2007, but continued as a consultant until 2010.

His contributions to the theater community also included serving as a longtime member of the Tony Awards nominating committee. He was inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in 2003.

Members of the public are invited and asked to RSVP in advance, either by phoning the Theatrical Index office at 212-586-6343 ext. 2, or e-mailing [email protected]
