Some Broadway greats, including Kate Baldwin, are tweeting and Facebooking their love for Nicholas Martin, "wherever he may be now". Can anyone confirm or deny the passing of this wonderful director?

Unfortunately, the reports keep pouring in. Oh, how terribly, terribly sad. And right off of his wild success with Vanya and Sonia...

Jenny Gersten tweeted it.

What a sad loss!
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

How sad. The mad was such a talented director. And everyone I know who worked with him said he was such a delight.

A lovely remembrance from Paul Rudnick, with a tribute video from the Huntington Theatre.

I'm under the (possibly mistaken) impression that you can edit the original post and that will update the title?

For some reason, I don't have the little "edit" link anymore. Some do, some don't.
