Photo Flash: Remembering the Wonderful Women We Lost in 2016

As we enter the new year, it is important to remember those we have lost in the preceding twelve months. Who shared their gifts with both our community and the world and whose mark will forever be left on all those lucky enough to have witnessed them in action.

From actors, to directors, to legends of the silver screed, join us as BroadwayWorld remembers all the great women we lost in 2016.
